Sometimes, history and time doesn't leave us flying boat enthusiasts that much to walk-round, and this small image series is a perfect case in point. These remains are all that is left of a 1923 Supermarine Seagull III. On display at the Solent Sky Museum in Southampton, England, this is the nose section and the cockpit area which was 'rescued' in 1974 having been used as a garden shed for over forty years!

Now preserved and saved for all-time it has been very carefully treated and a thoughtful presentation allows the enthusiast a good idea of the interior and exterior woodwork; just look at all those longerons and uprights.
