Mannequin heads only as bodies got damaged (Paris Flea Market) = can you imagine being the night security guard here ? He has to use the minimal light from his low powered torch to walks round here in almost pitch black darkness, with just the faces staring back as the torch illuminates where he patrols !! -★-
The Avro Lancaster was converted to a passenger airliner at the end of WW2, called the Lancastrian. From 1946 to the early 1950s seven Lancastrians were converted, for jet turbine testing, to accomodate two gas turbines (Rolls-Royce Nenes or Avons, de Havilland Ghosts or Armstrong Siddeley Sapphires) alongside the 2 exisiting Merlin engines. VH742 was fitted with Nenes, first flew on 14 August 1946 and became the first airliner to fly on jet power only from London-Paris, 23 November 1946.
