Fascinating and nicely prepared feature, much appreciated Keith. I was quite surprised to see the Enola in one piece as I had seen some pictures and read in a few places that the parts were or were to be distributed to various locations. Glad to see that the "rumours" were greatly exaggerated. I must also commend you on the shots you got as I had no idea the facility where the aircraft are located was as congested as your images show.
