      Saw a video on favebook earlier that showed WG having an engine test, not sure if it was today or an old video though?

          Red 11 (the two-seat Buchon) just made a very welcome "Hello to Duxford" fly through. Nice to finally get a look and listen to her. Welcome back for the first time since October 1968! I think the Paparazzi were drinking their cocoa at the time...

              Why should any one be smashing camera's on the floor?.

                Because the excellent Duxford photographers pride themselves on capturing anything unusual that moves or flies at Duxford. Thanks for your efforts chaps.

                  Seems no one captured the Bolingbroke departing to Hawkinge yesterday either...

                  I reckon the Paparazzi's Picket-Hamilton lookout emplacement must have been left unmanned

                    Ooh dear, not a good day for capturing those precious aviation memories A return visit after almost 50 years and a departure - They must try harder. Glad you enjoyed our impromptu fly through Roobarb.......

                      Bit difficult to capture something like that if you don't know it's happening beforehand.

                        Back in the day, when there was some enthusiastic staff at Duxford, whoever was in the tower would announce the arrival of or let people know something interesting would be flying through. It looks like those days and people have gone, How sad!!!!!!

                          The only way is to permanently monitor the tower frequency. Even then it's not always obvious what's coming in,
                          if they don't give their aircraft type.

                                        Is that a new rudder on TD314?
