Here are a couple more of those preview photos I'll replace them when I get the higher resolution photos.

They appear to have been taken at the same place, possibly at the same time as the first photo above.

Replaced preview photos with higher quality B/W photos

Just got this info from a friend,

Hello, how are you Diego?

Black hangars which can be seen in the last two photos are the hangars of Bellman of the Ministry of the air in the United Kingdom, of the harvest of 1930s / 40s. The car visible behind the tail, is a Mk.1 Ford Cortina Estate. I learned to drive in the coupé of my father, and it was fast. Anyway, what I am saying is that those photos were taken in the United Kingdom, possibly in an old RAF station. Perhaps Biggin Hill.


And more I didn't understand the part about the hangers
The Bellman hangar was ordered in numbers by the Air Ministry, before WW2. When you see them now, they're usually being used as warehousing by small transport companies on former RAF airfields.

All three photos were taken in England probably during ferry flight to Zambia Charlie Verrall photo was taken at Shoreham (EGKA), on the south coast, and is dated 21DEC68.
