Magic stuff, I love the connection with RAF Calshot.

My brother and I were at an RAF kids camp there for a week in the 50s, maybe '57, and spent much of our time aboard various ASR boats based at Calshot Spit. That only just pre-dated the Tristan's time at the base.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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