Reminds me of my youth. I was a member of the RAAF ground crew on this aircraft when it was transferred to Australia for High Speed High Altitude Bombalistic Trials prior to the Maralinga Atomic Tests. If the TUGMASTER was shown, or if I could have recognised any of the Vickers Weybridge Engineers, I would have given it 5 Stars!
