220 Feet

By dark_lord  
Thank you for your iunterest in yesterday's Spitfire Interior, and to all those who commented or voted.
Thanks also to taggart, iangilmoiur, ericfaragh, Monochrome2004 and Rose73 for their UAs.

I'll certainly upload some more behind the scenes shots.

Meanwhile, as I already had this one done...
I don't know what the aircraft is I'm afraid.
The title comes from the altimeter reading.

The registration on the right comes up as a CASA 1.131E Jungmann Srs 2000, according to the Shuttleworth site... I recognised the G-A*** as being a British aeroplane.

Thanks John. I should have noticed that, so I'll check out their site for some of the other aircraft, where I can find a registration.
Yes, all civilian British registered aircraft start with a G, French with an F, German with a D and American with an N, and that's as much as I recall.

I note the language of the control lever on the right is Spanish, but the rest seems to be English. Not a lot of instrumentation compared with present day planes, but interesting to try and work out what functions they have.

It begs the question what you were doing at 220 feet, Keith, and obviously clinging on outside the cockpit...Wink

The manufacturer is CASA, a Spanish constructor established in the 1920s. I haven't delved very far, but the Bücker Jungmann was a German primary aerobatic trainer from the 1930s and throughout WW2, roughly the equivalent of the Tiger Moth. Production continued in Spain until the 1960s; this 1967 example is painted in the colours Jungmanns were flown in in the 1936 Olympics.

There - I have delved after all Wink

Thanks Bill.
I'll have to dig out a Bucker Jungmann in flight from my airshow shots.
