Thompson Aircraft Refueller Part Two


I've already mentioned the Thompson aircraft refueller, a common sight at airfields and airports in the 1930's, here , and came across this great advert marketing them in the July 1 1937 issue of Flight magazine, still going today and with an online archive of past issues, accessible here

Now the weather is finally improving i'm hoping to make it down to Brooklands before too long, would be nice to get a better photograph of the Thompson refueller, and hopefully the paintwork will be in better condition too
