REGARDING the story featured on the front of page of The Bugle (December 5 edition), about the remains of a Handley Page aircraft being found supporting a garage roof in Flintshire.
This aircraft featured as the smaller aircraft, but there was a much larger aircraft with four engines.
This aircraft was fitted with flying controls which I used to pack when I worked at Lucas Aerospace factory in Fordhouses.
The flying controls were later modified to fit the Vulcan Bomber.
There were units that fitted into the wings and a unit for the tail plane.
This is the Handley Page H.P. 28 Handcross 1924.
This aircraft superseded the old Handley Page, therefore requiring the redesign of the flying controls.
I hope this has given your readers some idea of how aircraft developed over the years from a simple World War One bombers to today's jet fighters.
