Barnes Wallis would be proud, but he'd probably have the wings swinging too.............  ;D
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! :)

gonna be a bit warm in that tail turret when she goes into full reheat. :wacko:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Save on sheepskin jackets  ;)

Typical though. You are always reading how cold it got in those turrets, so you give them some heating and they still complain  ;D

Nice.

Of shoes and ships
         and sealing wax
      Of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
      And whether pigs have wings."
