    Spitfire IX ML407 and Mk.V EE602 from Biggin. Probably heading to either Duxford or Sywell

    I think that BHHH Mk Vc has been up and about today?

    awww, 8764, you beat me to it!

    I wonder if they are in the process of selling EE602? Air leasing are marketing it, so the appearance of ML407 at Biggin Hill and flying alongside could mean an imminent change of ownership for EE602?

    They took 407 to Biggin as it has a second seat for the pilot of EE602

    Thanks all, I am guessing Sywell then, any idea why ML407 in Biggin?

    There was a Spit flying over Park Farm Ind Est at Wellingborough yesterday afternoon, from the direction it was flying, I assume that it had taken off from Sywell but I only caught a glimpse so was unable ID it!

    ML407 was indeed crew ferry for EE602 pilot, RG to be taken back to Sywell. MkV probably a long term resident now.
