In June we arranged a visit to Norsk Luftfartsmuseum (NLMB) Bodø, Norway.
Attending was: Peter C Smith, Klas Gjølmesli, Birger Larsen, Simon Partridge, and Oyvind.
Staff from the Museum, museum magazine, and members of (BLHF)
Visit Bodø Aviation Historical Society
We did a lot of research on Blackburn Skua, reports, parts, drawings, and photos.
During our visit we were given full access to the museum stores, library, and archives.
Simon: The trip to Bodo was fantastic. Oyvind, Klas and Birger looked after us splendidly [and Peter Smith the Skua author was also there]. The Aircraft Museum is a marvellous modern building, and Birger took us to his storage hangar and started to rebuild a Skua on the floor in front of me with the parts they have salvaged. I did see parts from my father's second Skua which I never knew existed.
