In amongst all the Dakotas on Saturday, there was a handful of war birds flying. Classic Wings were using MJ627, from Biggin Hill, for their Fly in a Spitfire as their usual mount, PV202, had gone to Headcorn to replace the Aero Legends NH341 as that was in ARCo having an engine problem fixed. Mid-morning and NH341 emerged and went up for an air test and then left for Headcorn. TFC’s P-40F went up for a handling flight with a spot of aerobatics over the airfield on it’s return and late in the day the Bearcat went flying. In the order taken.

Apart from a cross wind coming from the south west, making take off and landings interesting especially with the Tiger Moth’s, a cloudy blustery day and busier than I thought it would be. Hurricane Mk 1/V7497 went up for a couple of handling flights, with some aerobatics thrown in, before it departed to Old Warden to take part in their evening show. Spitfire/PV202 was doing it’s usual Classic Wings stuff and B-17/Sally-B went off to Dunsfold on airshow duty there, back Sunday. Historic Aircraft Collection had their Spitfire and Hurricane out on the grass and the Spitfire hadn’t flown by the time I left. Just as I was leaving a micro jet in the shape of an Eclipse 500/2-JEZA touched down and parked up on the jet pan for the night.
