Spitfire 1A/N3200 @ Duxford - 26Mar14

Postby Pen Pusher on Wed 26 Mar 2014, 6:19 pm

I wasn't intending going to Duxford, with the possibility of showers most of the afternoon but as I hadn't been since Monday and wont be back again til next Monday, I was going to have a quick visit and be home before the showers set in. When N3200 came out to play, that plan went out the window. John Romain took it up for its first post restoration flight and circled the airfield while carrying out handling and stall checks. Satisfied with those he came in for a few passes for the ARCo/HFL workers gathered outside. Unfortunately a hail storm covered Duxford at the same time and JR flew off until it had passed. 15 minutes later he returned with a few more passes and a touch down on the grass. On the way home I ran into another hail storm and I found out my padded motorbike gear wasn't as waterproof as I though it was.
