Improper Space Spitfire

Bring your own leather flying helmet and fresh celery.

Exactly like the Proper Space Spitfire <link>, except is has its engine cowlings and gun access panels open, and undercarriage lowered, so all the naughty bits are clearly visible.

[marked-for-expiry], pun, echo.

       That's just pervy   

       <forces himself to look at the undercarriage just in the spirit of scientific inquiry, of course. Wonders where they got the black fishnet stockings to fit..>

       //black fishnet stockings to fit//   

       You speak truer than you know. During the winter of 1943 it was discovered that open-weave stockings (and, later, custom-made bags of the same material) were very effective "snow chains" for fighter aircraft which had to land on iced runways.

       //pen-weave stockings ....were very effective "snow chains"   

       Yes, but how did they know in the first place? Or maybe it is better not to know...

       It's a safe bet to think that the idea came from someone who was educated at one of the great English Public Schools.   

       Apparently, you can learn many interesting things in such establishments ...

       The practice may have originated from motorcycle dispatch riders who, when faced with treacherously muddy conditions, would sometimes take a strip of fabric and wind it around the rim of their wheel (that is, in and out spokes).
