Lovely pic of the Derwent today, is this a teaser shot? Any plans to pop it into something and get it running? :)

It's sectioned so it will never run again, unfortunately. We'd have had a tune out of it already had it been possible. No, it was very kindly donated by a local museum in order that we can spruce it up and give it as a gift to some great friends of ours in aerospace as a thank you for not supporting us in any way. :D

Awww such a shame, but what a lovely gesture to have had it donated!
