        Here Here ! Doesn't seem five minutes ago we were crossing our fingers that they all made it over here without any problems. Now some of them at least are heading back home.
        I only managed to see just some of them in the flesh - at Old Warden, but have been keeping an eye on them via their social media posts.

        It has been a pleasure and a privilege to watch them on on their journey, greatly helped by many of the posters on the various threads on this forum !

        P.S. Thanks to the 'heads up', just noticed N103NA Flabob Express just passed over Stornoway on her way towards Iceland.

        Cheers - Ron

                Looks like Sherman took Betsy up for quite a flight around Cambridge today

                  They didn't stay long (less than a hour), now inbound to Iceland. (edit: both Miss Montana & Flabob Express are over-nighting in Iceland)

                  None of the others moved much today, except 25641 (Legend Airways) which seems to be on a mission...They got from Iceland to Goose today via Greenland & have already left Goose for Val d'Or: At this rate they'll be back in Colorado for lunch tomorrow..

                        Under my gruff exterior lies an even gruffer interior...

                          Flabob is almost at Val d'Or
                          Miss Montana has left Iceland
                          Miss Virginia is at Prestwick
                          Virgina Ann is at Venice.
                          Hap Penstance is in Czech

                            The Historic Flight Foundation Pan Am-marked DC-3, will stay in the UK to participate in Flying Legends.

                            Owner John Sessions is a bit of an Anglophile owning a Sputfire, a RAF-marked B-25 and his Rapide (which I understand he is having repaired since his mishap).
                            There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

                              Not just any old RAF marked B-25, but the ex Fighter Collection owned "Grumpy".

                                Yes, there aren't many RAF marked B-25s about.
                                I saw it fly at an event two weeks ago and she's in fine shape.

                                Better yet, I understand she'll be based locally in a new HFF annex museum hangar, so I suspect I'll see more of her.

                                  Looks like Betsy left Greenland for Goose & then turned back after 2 hours. Any news?

                                    From their Facebook page :-
                                    "This morning we launched out of Reykjavik on our way to Greenland. Unfortunately, as we neared the midway point, we got an updated weather forecast indicating deteriorating weather in Narsarsuaq. Due to the lack of alternates and the fact that turning back was still an option, we elected return to Iceland and wait for better weather.
                                    We hope for better weather and look forward to trying again tomorrow."
