        A different wheel arrangement with the wheels compared to the Old Warden Lysander, these aren't covered.

        Comment


          I believe the wheel covers were often removed in active service, particularly by units in France?

            Doesn't the Lysander look stunning?! What a treat for Goodwood and all of us on here! Thanks Snappers ;-)

              Indeed it does!

              Got a chance to see it at Goodwood this evening, although time stopped me from having a really good close up look.

              Cheers

                  For her late owner, Sir Adrian Swire, I presume? Nice touch.

                  Comment


                    Thats a lovely touch! I remember seeing it on the cover of Aeroplane Monthly back in the early 80's with another Spitfire, both ground running. Not a clue which the other machine was though, but it has a gloss desert scheme if memory serves....

                      Very smart.

                        AC-S. Superb touch.

                        Is that Brian Smith and Pete Kynsey in the Corsair/Bearcat?

                          Wednesday 12th September

                          The museum held their second 'Lets have some display flying and not tell any one about it on social media until late the afternoon before' afternoon. This time it was the ARCo based Harvard/Taz and Stearman and TFC's Bearcat and Corsair. With wall to wall cloud, light for photography was bad and the Stearman and Harvard displayed a bit high and didn't venture much down to the M11 end. TFC played ball with the Bearcat/Corsair arriving as a pair, displaying separately and finishing as a pair.

                                Duxford 13/9/18. Another very active day today. A few quickly downloaded pictures below.

                                As already noted the new Hurricane G-HRLI / V7487 arrived this morning and later in the afternoon went for a further flight.

                                  I do rather like V7497.

                                  And good to see one of my favourite Spitfires airborne.

                                    Does anyone know why all of a sudden, we are seeing Hurricanes with an oddly slanted upper cowling section?. It really does stick out and is very odd looking. I cannot imagine that the correct profile cowling is too difficult to manufacture.

                                        Saturday 15th September

                                        As it's Battle of Britain Day, September 15th, I was hoping for a bit of Spitfire flying at Duxford. I wasn't disappointed as there were 6 flying. Mk.1/N3200, 3x T.9's/PV202/SM520/TD462, Mk.XVIe/TD248 and Mk.XVIII/SM845.

                                          Great stuff, as per usual.

                                          I love that topside pass of PT462 in particular.
