    Hello and a quick question

    Hello all. My name is Ross and Im new to the forum. I think this is the best aviation forum Ive visited and Im glad to be a part of it.
    Now I was just wondering, does anybody know how many airworthy Mustangs there are in the UK. I was thinking about this the other day and thought Id bring it up here.
    As far as I can tell there are six -

    TFCs - Miss Velma and Twilight Tear
    OFMC - Ferocious Frankie
    Pete Teichman - Jumpin Jacques
    RAC - Susy
    Woodchurch - Big Beautiful Doll

    Anyone know of any others? As I said, just something I was pondering the other day

    Thanks alot

    Ross

    When did Twilight Tear go to the USA? Because im pretty sure it is still listed on the Fighter Collections Website. I could be wrong though

    It went last month for the Mustang gathering and is then off for rebuild apparently. As far as I know TFC still own it.

    It is still listed on their website as its still part of the collection - just not in the UK. Their front page shows some nice shots of TT flying at the the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends last month.

    Twilight Tear was the best Stang at the gathering looking lovely and original. Apparently she is away for a 'sympathetic restoration'

    Speculation. We will not know that until she returns to the UK.

    Ah… one of my favourite Mustangs… that is a shame, I was hoping she’d stay in the UK. Wonder what Taff’s going to replace her with.

    My thoughts to all at Breighton during this time.
