  1. No problem. Beautiful scenery indeed and not to forget a beautiful plane! Cheers, Henk
  2. Roy Chadwick, CBE, FRSA, FRAeS (30 April 1893 – 23 August 1947) was an aircraft design engineer for the Avro Company. Born at Marsh Hall Farm, Farnworth, Widnes, the son of the mechanical engineer Charles Chadwick, he was the chief designer for Avro and was responsible for practically all of their aeroplane designs. He is famous in particular for designing the Avro Lancaster bomber, its follow-up Avro Lincoln and preliminary designs of the Avro Vulcan V-bomber. He also converted the Lincoln into the much-used Shackleton. His Avro Yorks carried one third of the entire British tonnage during the Berlin Airlift. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
  3. The Avro Model 621, designed by Roy Chadwick, was a two-seat British radial-engined biplane from the interwar period. It was a simple and rugged primary trainer that was used by the Royal Air Force as well as many other air arms worldwide.

It was initially developed as a fighter, a seaplane variant and a ground-attack version were also developed. It was a development of the earlier He 49. 1st put into service in 1935 it was retired in 1939 but continued in Spain until 1952.
  6. Congratulations to both of you, great shots! Henk
  7. In 1934, the Polish government, looking for an intermediate military trainer, bought two Avro Tutor trainer aircraft together with a licence to produce the aircraft. Production was ordered in the PWS (Podlaska Wytwórnia Samolotów - Podlasie Aircraft Factory). In 1935, Antoni Uszacki of the PWS modified the design, fitting it with a Wright Whirlwind engine, produced under licence in Poland.
