    Duxford Wednesday 14th February:

    Hurricane replica BAPC.267, now 'V7467' was back in position at Duxford's public entrance this morning. With more strong winds on the way, it may be a few days before the undercarriage is completed:







    Also on the move was the IWM Typhoon (DA4) ZH590, on the way from Hangar 4 to Airspace:

    I would guess that the filming in one place will take place while another is shot elsewhere? Or that one Hurricane is not available on the same days as the other one, or it could be a back up if one goes serviceable?

    Still a bit perplexed that the BBMF didnt take on the Qinetc Harvard...longest Harvard in uk service - I think they hire one in for currency training, shame - am sure there are good reasons above my paygrade but would have been a nice addition

    Actually, they are quite often loaned one for their currency training.

    Thursday 15th February

    What better way to start the day than walking through the visitors center to be greeted by a Mk.XIV Spitfire diving down from the west for a five minute display over the airfield. What was even better was that after landing and parking up by the gate by the tower G-SPIT fired up again and we had another five minutes of a Rolls-Royce Griffon growling over the airfield. When the fun and games ended the Spit was parked in 3 hangar. At 2 hangar, there was some war bird movements but it was just ARCo shuffling around some of their fleet. On entering hangar 5, I had a flash back to the summer and a big white tent on the hangar base. I thought the museum was having another art installation with black plastic screening around the nose of the Victor. It's to protect the public from the paint stripping that's about to start. In AirSpace the Typhoon was being set up for a film shoot that was taking place later in the day. Early afternoon and amongst the GA visitors was a very nice looking Waco dating from 1932 and later in the afternoon, Beaver/G-EVMK went up for what I believe was it's second flight. I missed the first. In the order taken.

    A lovely sequence of photos Brian, thanks for sharing them! Some very moody shots.

    I saw a couple of photos of the Waco on Facebook a few minutes ago - I expect our Duxford correspondents will be all over it in short order!

    Lovely shots.
    Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.

    That Spitfire has just got to be my favourite aircraft. If I won the Euro Millions tonight and it came up for sale, I'd just have to...

    Duxford Saturday 17th February:

    There were plenty of light aircraft visiting Duxford today, but Harvard G-TDJN owned the apron (many thanks to DN):







    G-AWKD is a Piper PA-17 Vagabond of 1949 vintage:

    That AT-6D is an absolute stunner! I know that the owner, who had the aircraft restored by Midwest Aero in the US, also has a P-51D currently under restoration at Midwest Aero (to also be painted in 353rd FG markings). It will make for a stunning pair, when the Mustang is eventually completed and makes its way over.

    Been watching this for a while now, 31 DC3/C47 due to arrive at Duxford next year from 02 -- 05 June 75th anniversary of D-Day think there pushing for 40+ can't see where they will all be lined up for a flight line walk ?
