Thursday 4th July 2019
Another very, very hot Thursday at Duxford. Plenty warbirds parked out on the grass but the only one’s flying while I was there were Spitfire/PV202 and the Lysander, both on passenger flights. There were a few others having engine runs including the PAN AM DC-3/N877MG, which is down to appear at Flying Legends next weekend, which had spent a few days inside having a bit of TLC from the ARCo engineers.
Saturday 6th July 2019
A bit of a warbird Saturday which started just after the museum opened when the Anglia Aircraft Restorations Buchon/Yellow 7, Spitfire Mk FRXIVe/MV268 and Spitfire Mk Vc/EE602 flew off together for the weekend to take part in the Wales Airshow at Swansea. Harvard IIB/G-TSIX, based at Earls Colne near Colchester, was visiting and spent most of the morning circuit bashing. Classic Wings were busy with Rapide, Tiger Moth and Harvard flights along Spitfire’s PV202 and N3200 with fly-in and with flights. B-17/Sally-B flew down to Headcorn to take part in their Battle of Britain Air Show. In the order taken.
Thursday 11th July 2019
Pre-Legends Thursday was reasonably busy with test/handling/aerobatic flights. Comanche Fighter’s P-51B Mustang/ “Berlin Express”/(N515ZB) had an air test in the morning and then in the afternoon, along with P-51D Mustang/'The Hun Hunter \Texas'/(N351MX) flew out of Duxford for Biggin Hill and despite rumours and speculation that they were going to be broken down and containerised for the trip back to America, both aircraft turned up in one piece in Switzerland. GIRTY/The Silver Spitfire had a handling flight in the morning and in the afternoon flew out for a 4 hour cross country flight. The Lysander and Harvard/’Taz’ went out on an air-to-air photoshoot. In order taken.
