Quag, finding things bit by bit here...

Here's a page on the Control Towers site which has an iffy shot of one of the 25 or so Lysanders attached to the USAAF for target towing duties:

Excellent Wolf. Thanks for the Lysander link. Now I have an excuse to add a Lysander kit to my stash! Wink [;)] I figured if I dangled this carrot out there you'd be one of the human search engines to take up the challenge. Great job, and thanks again!

Thanks death. Now that you mention it I remember that pic. Problem with a steel trap memory is getting it back open again, though. Thanks for providing the catalyst to pry it open again. Classic Airframes Kit #482 to be added to the X-mas list!
