Thursday: 6th August 2020

 

On the 4th August, after its first flight of the day, Hawker Sea Fury T.20/WG655/(G-INVN) unfortunately crashed just to the north of Duxford, the pilot and passenger walked out of the wreckage with minor injuries. Photo shows the T.20 landing after its first flight. Highlight of the day was the appearance of Spitfire PRXIX/(F-AZJS). It was just about to go for a first flight but aborted and the last I saw was it being returned to the hangar for a bit more TLC. It did fly later in the day after I had left. While waiting for the French Spitfire to fly, we were entertained by a pair of North Weald based Westland Scout helicopters who came in for a bit of circuit bashing and auto-rotational landing practice that involved sliding along the grass on their skids. XV126/50K was wearing a scheme worn by Scouts in Germany in 1980 on Exercise Crusader. In the order taken.
