A slim undercarriage with a finely streamlined fuselage (but more hump-backed than the Spitfire), distinctive nose and an unusually large wing span....
Ok, so you don’t need to know your aircraft silhouettes here today. I’m just trying to make my new hat tie in with the RAF Friday theme, and thought a few silhouettes of some dashing aircraft would do the trick!
Buy a new hat, bung on a coat with the best 'silhouette' in the world (See what I did there ;)...oh the shoulders are the absolute tops); then add a few dodgy cut-outs of a Spit, Hurricane, Blenheim, and a Mosquito or two and what do you have? Why a RAF Friday blog, silly!
Sickly sweet or what! Even I want to slap myself in this picture!
As most of you know, I do rather like a nice hat or two (or four or five) and my groaning hat boxes are a testament to that. I need another hat like I need a hole in the head. But when a titfer speaks to me so joyously, how can one resist? It would be rude to ignore it!
I can’t help it. I ADORE hats!
It’s actually a bit of a dream hat. For what seems like forever (ok, only eight or nine years!) I have had an image stuck in my head. The image is of a lady grocery shopping, wearing a large brimmed hat and a fab coat made out of a candlewick bedspread. I wanted this outfit. I wanted that hat! Well, now I have both. :) (more about the coat later…)
But for now I will just leave you with a million pictures of me wearing my new hat... all frightfully similar, of course!

Gosh, I've never seen this coat from the back- looks rather lovely.
The picture on the right makes me laugh. It looks like I've been wheeled into the picture- so awkward!
So there you have it,..
A hat of navy blue,
with wings upon my heart.
Now all I need is an airman to say I do… think your new hat is rather Tickety Boo!
Here's to the next time.
Have a cracking weekend,
Your Tupney x
And this last one is for my Mammy, just because she likes it!

RAF Fridays so far...
