Duxford In The Sun - 01Apr10

Postby Pen Pusher on Thu 01 Apr 2010, 7:20 pm

Despite the cutting cold wind, there was a blue sky and the warm sun was out along with the HAC Spitfire and Hurricane. They were being used as a backdrop to a photo shoot for a car magazine. The Buchon, in its new colours, was also sunning itself in the ARCo compound but a Mk XVI Spitfire was conveniently parked in front of it so I'll have to wait for a decent shot. The Blenheim has an engine mount fixed on it now, Sally B has all her engine cowlings on and the Catalina is sitting on its wheels, so the last two could be on test flights soon. By lunchtime it had clouded over and was trying to rain when I left

Third shot is really nice Brian.

Nothing at all you can post of the Buchon? What scheme is it in now?

The Buchon is now painted in a Battle of Britain scheme. It looks very good from the pics I have seen, though not many pics have been revealed of her yet. I've only seen her Yellow nose, and the camo on the wings. Of course there is a second one as well now at Duxford, which I beleive is going in an desert scheme (correct me if i'm wrong). Hope that helps, sorry I can't find a link for a pic. :biggrin:

It is now in the scheme of 'Yellow 10' that it wore for The Battle of Britain film.

Scroll down to the bottom of page one of the Key forum link and one shot on page 2. http://forum.keypublishing.co.uk/showthread.php?t=98336

Thanks. Looks nice, but I'd look even better painted up in Spanish markings. :drool:

Cool, cheers Brian. I'm sure they would have paid for the shoot, which is a welcome source of income.

Another quality post Brian. :clap: :clap:

Does anyone know from where the Swedish Firefly surfaced? I thought they had been sold off years ago, it is good to see her in yellow TT colours.
