      Both of which are rumoured to be heading back stateside soon. Well Hun Hunter is for sure! He owns so many cool looking mustangs! I welcome what ever he wants to.send

        Saturday 25th August

        Apart from Classic Wings, it's been a bit quiet flying wise on a Saturday since Legends but it appears to be picking up a bit now. P-51/Miss Helen flew away for the day and the Great War Display Team's BE2c and SE5a dropped in on their way back to Sywell. The ARCo Lysander/V9312 was out for a couple of high speed taxi runs, but no flying, and the Blenheim flew off to North Wales and back to take part in the Rhyl Air Show. All three of the Duxford based Harvard's were up flying as well. In the order taken

            That’s a very unusual exhaust arrangement on the B.E.2 !

                        Its interesting to ponder the first Lysander that became an IWM static - I wonder how good or otherwise she was

                          Delighted to see the Lysander in the air.

                          I took Dad to Old Warden for his 80th and theirs made his day - he hadn't seen one in the air since the war. He won't ever see this one, but I'm sure his shade was watching.

                            It's great to see a Lysander painted in camouflage instead of SOE black.

                            Are they planning on fitting the winglets on the wheel spats ?

                                          A Lysander-related question which has been bothering me for a while - what on earth are the two tiny windows at the base of the fin for? Oblique camera? They surely can't be for the observer, who has a much better view from the rear cockpit and would play merry havoc with the CoG crawling all the way back there...
