Watching TV last week I spotted a Harrier in a car park. When I Googled to find the location it showed that there is also a Bell 47 helo next to it and an EE Lightning hanging in the staff café. Such is the world of the Dyson HQ!

Dyson HQ, 1 Tetbury Hill, Malmesbury.

Lightning F1A, XM173

Harrier and Bell are in bottom right corner of car park triangle. https://www.wired.com/2012/04/opinion-dyson-harrier-resolve/

Maybe they've had problems with high flying industrial espionage, after all they've just been in the news about alleged I.E.

Found one you don't have yet. May be others in the area, too!

Is that camo or graffiti? It certainly works as it takes a while to see that it is a Vigi.

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Definitely grafitti. Less "gang banger" and more "artsy fartsy" but I think it still qualifies as grafitti?  Admittedly I didn't even watch the very video I posted but I had to stop and go look just now. There's all kinds of hippie lookin stuff, etc. But you know what... it does work pretty well for not only hiding it (up toward the nose for sure) but distorting the shape as well. Gives new meaning to "urban camo."

Ruminating on a grafitti paint job for a whif but....  sounds like a nightmare.

Could be worse! At least with all the paint it is somewhat weatherproofed..?  Eh... I dunno... reaching for something here. .. .  ;D

I'll put something on my blog you might like.  Or not...

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Wow, that's... different.  Looks like a planned "artistic" paint job, perhaps by the resort that seems to have taken over that area.  Found it and added to the map, thanks!

You're welcome! It's getting more difficult to help out as you go along so it makes my day when I actually DO find something.

I agree, the paint on there isn't random enough to be common vandalism so I was thinking the same thing you were and that somone did it on purpose.

Me, I would have painted it up in Soviet VVS stuff just to confuse people.  :angel:

Ha!

And I appreciate any help.  You guys have made it easy for me to find quite a few things.

I think we have all the museums in the world- 1435 or so, and just trickling in anymore. But there are lots of gate guards out there.  I have my resources, lists, etc., but it will take years to add them all.
