To be precise, the Do-31 is the only VTOL jet transport ever making it into the air.

True, and since Mex has not returned within 24 hours it is now an open round.

So take this:

I was waiting to tell you gents about it.

That picture was taken one day after the September 1979 Windsor Locks tornado. It passed directly over what was then the Bradley Air Museum. It damaged or destroyed more than half of the outdoor aircraft collection and a sizable chunk of the indoor collection as well. The museum then moved to its present location north of Bradley International Airport on the perimeter road. That was back in the 80’s so it was at least a decade before my time. I now work at that museum as a restorer and guide and I have had the pleasure of working on a few of the aircraft in that picture that survived. I was there today in fact and we moved quite a few aircraft in order to bring an old one in. It was a logistical nightmare, eek! I was then tasked with the job of installing a solar powered fan in the bottom of a Dassault HU-25 Falcon for cooling while we leave it outside for a few weeks. That went off without a hitch so I moved on to moving a couple of display cases and reprimanding children and their parents for going behind the roaps and on to/in to things they shouldn’t. Just a snippit of my day with some history to boot. Cheers gents!
