                Great to see - when was the last time one was airborne, I wonder?

                              Great to see the DH.9 take to the skies today. Also worthy of note was B-17G 'Sally B' making her first flights of 2019:

                                    Blimey, no naysaying about a data plate rebuild! A triumph for the Flypast forum! Well done all for giving us a DH9....

                                      Must be a trick of perspective or of the eye, but the propeller seems so small on that last head-on DH9 picture, especially compared with the picture above that.

                                        Glorious sunshine today brought out a few of the local warbird fleet. TFC's P-36 had an engine test, and the P-40C flew an extended local test. Sharkmouth was also flying:
