Evening all,

My father has an interest in recent military history and he and a few members of his group moved some fuel tanks to RAF Welford last weekend. He sent me the email below and was hoping for some help identifying some of them! I'm not sure if anyone can shed any light. He'd greatly appreciate it!

'The photo near the tractor is definately the drop tank from a P51 Mustang. The ones on the back of the truck were originally scrounged from RAF Boscombe Down. They are big enough it took 4 of us to lift them. They are from something like a Phantom, or Buccaneer or Hunter

P-51 Mustang Drop Tank

The mystery tanks!
