Re: What did you do at the weekend?

Cummins...Schmummins! Worked on a boat fitted with two of the things a few years back. What a racket - all noise and very little action. Replaced with Perkins and last heard of in use as a mooring. :twisted:

Re: Steering wheel

An Airwork Atlantic DC6A London to New York on Saturday 1 October 1955 according to an item in the Flight archive - see issue for 7 October. It looks quite a tight fit - the cargo door was 10' 4" wide and 7' 6" high.
