    That is a shame they are moving out of NW, maybe it was a temporary thing for the winter?

    I believe another ex-WoGB piece of history has also made a return to DX as well as G-SPIT...

    I was about to ask what's happening with the North Weald aircraft, then I remembered my signature.

    G-SPIT is in much better condition than the one you are talking about Roobs!

    OK guys, stop dangling carrots. If you know whats going on, and it's not going too offend the owners, then tell us. Too many of "in the know" conversations!! Interesting though!

    Thursday, 16Feb17

    P-51/Ferocious Frankie took advantage of the late winter warm weather and sunshine, for a very brief period, while Spitfire XIV/MV268 was moved into hangar 3 and its stable mate, P-51/Miss Velma was in hangar 2 receiving a bit of TLC. The aircraft in AirSpace have been undergoing a bit of early spring cleaning all week as the dust and cobwebs have been brushed and hovered away. Quiet outside flying wise although there was a visiting Chipmunk from Old Warden and an S-76C from Stansted doing circuits as I left. In the order taken.

    They dusted the Vulcan? That's going to affect this years crop of taters.
    If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

    For the benefit of those who, like me, were in the dark about why North Weald-based machines had flocked back to DX, this from the North Weald Diary 2017 thread:
    Quote Originally Posted by LN Strike Eagle View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by North Weald Heritage Aviation

    As many of you may be aware, Spitfire Fr.XIVe (G-SPIT), Fury Mk.II (G-CBEL) and P-51D(TF) Mustang (G-TFSI) recently left our hangar at North Weald.

    Whilst remaining under the same ownership, the decision has been made to base the aircraft from now on, at The Imperial War Museum Duxford. The Spitfire and Mustang have already arrived there, whilst the Fury will eventually follow on after spending some time at Sywell.

    WV322, the Hawker Hunter T.8c (G-BZSE) which resides in our hangar under the same ownership, will be remaining with us, with the continued aim of returning her to the air.

    Of course this now means that we will no longer be able to offer sit in experiences involving the Spitfire, Fury and Mustang. However, we do not anticipate this to be the end of NWHA and we are now exploring other options to provide new interactive experiences, along with continuing to offer the chance to see inside the hangar at the hard work which goes in to keeping these vintage and ex military aircraft flying.

    We will of course endeavour to keep our Facebook followers up to date as soon as we can as to when we may look to resume hangar tours and in what shape they may take.

    Until then, we thank you all for your continued support and look forward to seeing you in the hangar again soon.

    Duxford closed-ish.

    From IWM Facebook
    Due to the extreme weather conditions, only Air Space at IWM Duxford will be open for the next couple of hours. We hope to reopen the rest of the museum later this afternoon when conditions have improved. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Anybody considering a flight from Duxford this year?
    Classic Wings Spitfire flights now start from £2495 (beginning April 7th)
    Boultbee are proposing Duxford flights from £2850.
    Both feature HFL's PV202.

    Or how about a Spitfire / 109 dogfight for only £12,240.00. Hangar tour included!
