Default Vintage Blackpool/ Alton Towers Exhibition Photos

Hey All!

Was clearing out the loft and found some old snaps of the exhibitions at Alton Towers & Blackpool.

Most of these are out of focus or there is too much "flash" but a few are OK.

Here's a couple -

44" Eagle 2 at Alton Towers -



Large Ultra Probe at Alton Towers -



22" Cargo Eagle (note size & colour of winch - maybe PE didn't get it so wrong after all...) -



I do have more shots if anyone's interested?

Would love to see if other members have similar pics,
Ian

On Eagle 2, the hanging port forward landing gear almost looks like it's waving bye-bye to Alpha!

On the Eagle Freighter, it appears a vernier may be missing from the rear thruster quad...

Intersting pics, stiki!

Default Vintage Alton Towers Pics

Hey Big Rab & Fun Pod - thanks for responding.

Here's a couple more shots - I don't know about you, but I was just as fascinated by the full size sets & costumes as by the models...

Firstly, Commander Koenig's Desk flanked by Maya & Entran Guard.
Behind are computer panels from Command Center.
This shot is from Alton Towers



Maya's Desk (well what was left of it) flanked by Zantor



Please excuse the "flash reflections" this was the best I could manage with my "disc" camera!

Lastly (for now)
The Moonbuggy & Astronaut - again from Alton Towers



I have more shots of the ship models and will post if you'd like to see?
Ian

That last shot looks like a scene from Breakaway!
