No doubt where these two are looking. I would have been more interested in the airship and the rather splendid cars.

Worked at RAF Cardington for a number of years and 217 MU was charged with many a job for our on site museum and one was for the restoration of the R101s steering wheel as seen in the picture...that me in the middle...

Of the four cars seen in this shot, the two below the haystacks are local: TM is a Luton registration. The other two - that on the left and the other, extreme right, have registrations EL [probably] and PR. These are both registered as Bournemouth vehicles. Is that significant?
