Typical Duxford weather. Plenty of flying when the clouds rolled over but when the sun shone, nothing flew. The Cessna Citation was an early visitor which parked up on the jet pan til Monday as air traffic control at Cambridge airport at the weekends is closed. Gnat T1/G-MOUR flew in from North Weald for some circuits in the morning and came back again in the afternoon for some more. With the ARCo Spitfire/PV202 flying with Aero Legends at Headcorn, Classic Wings brought in Spitfire/MJ627 from Biggin Hill for the fly in a Spitfire flights. In the order taken.

Once the fog lifted, the sun shone all day and there was a brisk, warm breeze blowing in from the south east but not breezy enough to blow away the high cloud and haze. It must be summer again as the British Antarctic Survey Twin Otter is back from its holiday down in the southern hemisphere. It flew out for the day. I wasn’t expecting anything much else to happen but the Catalina was doing circuits for crew training and the Lysander was airborne to the north for about an hour and we had a short display when it returned. In the order taken.
