    They are pretty close; you would have to an eagle eyed copper to spot anything untoward with those (chavvy) plates. Took me a while of studying to spot the D in the corner as well; I suppose that could almost be a GB at a distance if you had a couple of cataracts.

    As does the one in the top pic. One near the car, propeller above the car roof, and one further away from camera with the undercarriage leg, prop just in front of door mirror. Trust me, it's a DC7.

    I'd have said DC-4 (round windows, 3-bladed props).

    No, about the same as having Black and White plates, you might be lucky and not get stopped for a while but eventually you will.

    Hmm. Yes, well... Even the astradome 'twixt the antennae is correct. So it's a DC4 then! :eek: What do they say about someone who says 'Trust me'?

    Actually I still couldn't see it but I can see the pipe which I presume is an exhaust on the engine nearest to 'us' and then a second one on the bit which is in front of the N/S mirror on the car.
