Excellent submittal. I wasn't prepared to see equipment from the first Gulf War in museums already, but it has been almost 20 years.

Hi Ossie, Yip, trouble with displaying any vehicle in the elements unfortunately. Lets hope they ahve enough sesne to rotate it around. They have a lot of great stuff at Duxford but need a new or additional building to display it properly and some decent lighting lol, lol. Al
