    Last time I saw Berlin Express she was in the Stephenson Hanger with ARC but that was a while ago.

      I believe they were put in charge of fixing the fin and stabilisers after it had returned from being fixed after the flying legends mishap a few years ago.
      I think John Romain took it for a test flight but shortly after the whole fin and rudder were taken off and sent back stateside?

        Duxford Sunday 10th February:

        As promised, the DAS Trident 2E G-AVFB was moved into Airspace this morning for a few days 'facelift':











        Also in Airspace today:

          Has anyone ever had gold passes for Flying Legends? Just wondering what people thought about the experience?

            I'm curious about that myself, the Gold Pass experience at Warbirds Over Wanaka 2004 set a very, very high bar for me. When I get to Duxford I'd like to know if it's worth springing for one there, too.

              Any idea what time the "Farewell Tonkas" are flying over on the 20th?

                The RAF PR blurb suggested to me it was a solo Tornado. Shame, a three-ship would look much better.

                  I've made use of the Gold Pass Enclosure for a few years (usually as my birthday treat), though not recently - a couple of years we also took the option of lunch. It did afford a better view of the show though it seems like they are cramming more and more seats into the Gold enclosure of late, with the "Platinum Pass" and other corporate pens now encroaching into the square footage allocate to TFC.
                  The marquee is a good size and can be a welcome refuge from the blazing sun or July monsoon.
                  The first GP tickets were 50 a day and are now 85 - as a one time treat it may still be reasonable upgrade over the early bird advance ticket price 31.50 or 35 after 14/5...

                      Tornado tour will consist of three aircraft, most likely the specials.

                        If Gold seating is getting squashed I suggest you look at the Grandstand option. Highly recommended at 17.50. Not that many seats though, it was fully booked resulting in many being turned away. Were going to stay at a nearby Premier Inn the night before inc breakfast for less than 50....get in early for once!

                          Timings for the Tornado 3 day tour have yet to be released. It is probably best to keep an eye on the R.A.F. Marham Facebook page for the latest details.
