Squadron

A write club acrostic, written by inky.

#Imperialwarmuseum #Airfix #Planes #Squadron #Military #Aircraft

Sat atop a great height

quite a few planes, old and new

used to being in hangars, have found

a home by the waters of a canal

definitely a peacetime operation

red arrows escorting a Spitfire veteran and

other D-Day participants – resting on their runway

new recruits ready to escort them from another bookshelf

Salford, 10th July 2020

#Airfix #Quickbuild #Model

To pass the time during lockdown – i’ve been building

A few planes and Jet Fighters to pass the time

Now, today i’ve made something a little different

Keep your eyes peeled and you may see what rolled up today

Hard as nails

Raptor jet (Airfix) Built and photographed by inky

The pieces of the plane

snapped together quite remarkably

from propeller to wing to cockpit

it’s parts have kept together

locked in tight – no need for a hammer or nails

superglue ? redundant

it would take some serious force

for it (or any of it’s fellow squadron)

to lose their wings

though there is a case

gravity may play a hand

German Me 106

The formation of the squadron

came with a moment

Chassis and Wings coming together

with a single click

as planes from the past

joined up with their more younger cadets

on top of the bookshelves

American P51 Mustang Jet

and to stop two old veterans squabbling

they’ve each been given a runway

to stop them falling to pieces

British Spitfire
