    Buchon debut of G-AWHR at DX today!

    Many thanks to the Air Leasing pilot that came through in the "new" Buchon G-AWHR this afternoon. First time since September 1968.

    Much appreciated by all of the Buchon lovers here.

      'HR's debut was indeed a highlight this afternoon:



      As well as the newest, we has the shiniest and the shabbiest:

        Great photos.

        The Buchon looks great - that scheme has really grown on me.

        The Spitfire looks gorgeous, too.

              Was the C130 delivering anything?

                Duxford Thursday 4th July:

                Very pleasing to see PT462 back in the air this afternoon, fully recovered from the Denham incident on Feb 27th. No doubt she'll be earning her keep again very soon.





                Some more late afternoon action:

                      Duxford Monday 8th July:

                      A quiet start to Legends Week, with only P-51D 'Sharkmouth', Spitfires PL983 and PV202 active.





                      There's still a lot to do:



                      Pilatus PC24 HB-VXB (third prototype) was using Duxford's grass to continue testing the type's rough field landing abilities:

                        Duxford Tuesday 9th July:

                        Plenty of action today, despite the very dull weather. Seven different Spitfires were flying, with the visiting Rolls Royce PR.XIX PS853 being of note.









                        More of today's flying:











                        Another Legends regular was back today, with some interesting mission markings:

                            What's happening with the Fiat CR.42? Things seem to have gone very quiet there, when it looked almost ready for completion a while back?

                                The Norwegian Dak was moved to facilitate an engine change:





                                This AN-2 flew through on the way to Fowlmere:

                                        The Boultbee Spitfire looks like it has been covered in crumpled silver paper.

                                          Where did Berlin Express and Hun Hunter/Texas disappear to? They're not in the TFC hangar. Are they just hiding in ARCo's building for the weekend of have they gone back Stateside?
