Duxford Bimble's - June 2018

Duxford Bimble's - June 2018

2nd June 2018

Considering the weather forecast for the afternoon was rain and thunder, the blue sky, sunshine and fluffy clouds was greatly appreciated. The British Antarctic Survey Twin Otter VP-FBL flew in to join its stable mate VP-FAZ. There are now twin Twin Otters parked on the jet pan. The Blenheim flew off to Exeter for the Torbay air show and Spitfire MK Vc/EE602 went up for a handling flight and a spot of aerobatics on its return and the ARCo Beaver also did a brief but spirited display routine. Stu Goldspink flew the TFC Wildcat to overnight at Old Warden for the Fly Navy show on Sunday

A different type of warbird flying at Duxford today when ‘DEMON 11’ flight, a pair of Fairchild A-10 Thunderbolt II of the 107th Fighter Squadron based at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan, flew a couple of missed approaches at Duxford before returning to Mildenhall. They had been to France to take part in the annual D-Day Anniversary event near Cherbourg. The lead A-10 was wearing a special paint scheme commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the 107th Squadron/“Red Devils”. The Squadron is on deployment to Europe. Three passes had been booked but the A-10's were a bit late and the Hawker Fury was waiting to depart to open the Old Warden air show so we only had two circuits. Photos in the order taken.
