    Any chance someone with this book could help with details for the Smoke Curtain Installation 250 lb Mk IV? Mostly looking for length and diameter.

    I hate to purchase the whole book to research just one item... (sorry Geoff)

    Thanks in advance.

    The length is approximately 1095mm, however the examples that i've measured, have all been field recovered and as such are rusted or deformed.
    I know someone who has a pristine example of one of these so will mail him for an accurate length.

    The diameter is 279mm

    For information these came in 250lb, 400lb, 500lb, 1000lb and 1700lb sizes, all with mustard fill.

    Cheers

    Pete

    Length with fairing - 1765mm

    Length without fairing - 1219mm

    Fill - 60.4 Litres of Mustard

    Hope this helps
