Re: Fellow Aviators/ lovers of aviation

This is a great thread. I’m lucky enough to in the DC area with easy access to the Air and Space Museum and its annex near Dulles airport. It’s always a favorite museum to visit, as seeing all the aircraft never gets old to me. It’s amazing to think one can see an SR71 (first pic) in a museum now! T...

I think I’ve just misread your misread. My first when I read your post was that Boston is in Lincolnshire, not Lancashire.

Re: New LE Sector Dial 38mm - Pre-order live!

Is the name sector dial simply a reference to that design element on the dial, or is their a specific type of function sector dials originally might have been developed for that’s now not so relevant?
