Duxford November Bimbles ~ *UPDATE 2~11Nov16*

Postby Pen Pusher on Sat 05 Nov 2016, 6:52 pm

Having fought off a hacking/coughing head cold for the last two weeks, I though it was time to get out and about again and see if I could remember how to get to Duxford. The cold, brisk northerly wind certainly did clear out the cobwebs. Apart from the Victor fuselage taking up residence in 5 hangar for the next 3+ years and TFC having a shuffle around of their fleet in hangar 2, not a lot had changed since my last visit. Very quiet flying wise with only the Classic Wings Cessna 172 and Rapide doing a couple of flights and there were a couple of GA visitors.

The first few are great shots of a huge graceful Whale.

She'll look great when she's done.

Thanks for sharing them.

Agree be great to see her once done, I'mj just a little bit surprised there wasn't at least some form of contact from the IWM to thank people who contributed via the Just Giving page that they set up to sponsor this restoration....but maybe that's just me....

A quiet day at Duxford although there was a possibility of the Sopwith Pup, based in hangar 3, having an engine run and was it was also due a second flight. It hadn't emerged by the time I had left but I was told later that it was up flying when the museum closed at 4pm. Having left Duxford in French Air Force markings, T-28 Fennec/G-TROY returned to Duxford on Tuesday with a new identity. It has now been repainted as a T-28 Trojan and is in the original markings it carried when flying with the USAF Training Command in March 1953. Apologies for going overboard on the T-28 but a silver aeroplane parked in the sunshine with storm clouds above made for some interesting photographic opportunities. Until it started raining. In the order they were taken.

Absolutely lovely scheme on the T-28.

Another really interesting bimble - many thanks for keeping these going.
One day you might think about putting something together in a book form.

Been a while since I didn't have to dig my gloves out as I Bimbled around Duxford. It was a bright, crisp day with blue sky, high cloud but unfortunately very little wind to blow the haze away so far from ideal photographic conditions. A varied day on the flying side. As the Nieuport 17 Replica was being readied for a flight, a 32 Squadron Agusta Westland 109SP GrandNew helicopter/GZ100 from RAF Northolt, called in for a couple of hours. As it was leaving an RAF Air Cadets Grob Vigilant T.1/ZH271 arrived and parked up in the spot left by the Agusta. As it was leaving a LVII(R) Squadron Grob G115E Tutor/G-BYWN arrived for a stop over. Several GA types were doing circuits with an Apache helicopter thrown in for good measure. In the order they were taken.
