The Sunday Fighter Collection volunteers had a busy day as they played musical aeroplanes with their war birds in the eastern end of the hangar to get the Hawk 75 out onto the airfield and the Beech Staggerwing into the sunshine as well. Early afternoon and the Hawk 75 went for a 35 minute test/handling flight to the north of Cambridgeshire and on its return, a bit of aerobatics over the airfield. Unfortunately dark clouds and a bit of a rain front passed over Duxford during the display. With winter approaching in the Antarctic, the British Antarctic Survey Twin Otter is back for the British summer and is parked on the grass outside ARCo.

Last update for April and it was a moving day at Duxford. The ARCo war birds in hangar 2/north-east were being moved outside and parked on the grass and jet pan as B-17 'Sally-B' was emerging from her winter hibernation into the warm spring sunshine. Once parked next to the Shackleton, low rev engine runs were conducted for about 30 minutes. During the afternoon the wingtips were reattached. The British Antarctic Survey Twin Otter went for a trip to the north and was following the M11 back to Duxford as I was heading home north along it. Later in the afternoon, TFC came out to play with the Harvard and Bearcat having engine runs out on the airfield.

Nice set of pictures. just goes to show that not all museums just house static pieces. :up:

Can I ask do you know when the Victor will be fully restored? My late father in law was in the RAF at Marham on 57 squadron and worked on that aircraft.

Thanks
