    There's a project to restore a Blenheim to flying condition that is being worked on at Canadian Warplane Heritage. It's been a long project but and it didn't look like an airplane for a long time but the last time I saw it things were starting to come together.

    In case there is any confusion, Canadian built Blenheim Mark IVs were called the "Bolingbroke". No idea why there was a name change.

    I hope to be able to see it flying some day!

    The nose is slightly different on the Bolingbroke. They have been working on it for quite some time at CWH as well.

    That's great stuff. I didn't know there were so many flying Spitfires.

    That 109 doesn't look quite like a 109. It looks like the planes they used in the 1960s movie Battle of Britian. The cowling is different. Anybody know what that plane is? Is it a postwar foreign model or something?

    You're right i think it is a Spanish version of the 109 which is not powered by the V-inverted Daimler but with a RR Merlin: i think the Spanish called it the Buchon (pidgeon?)...
