    Now THAT'S a generator! It looks like a V-twin engine...

    Thanks for the report, I can appreciate how much more difficult it is to take photographs in pitch darkness - and these are great!

    If that's the one that was at RAF Chenies, that was my absolute favourite piece of generator equipment I've ever found on an explore, so much so I climbed all over it!

    While walking to the place from the nearby station it started to proper lash it down in sheets of rain, I did for a few moments ponder whether what we were doing was entirely sensible but we'd come all that way and were already soaked through so persevered
