Lindy and friends go for a walk

The last few weeks have been busy at Elvington, with the roll out of the Bucc and last weeks thunder day with all live aircraft running engines statically. This weekend we went a stage further. With the return to the runway for high speed runs in August, it was decided we would have an engineering practice day, to test all our recent work getting the aircraft back to taxi status. It also was used as a training day for the ground crews to taxi and marshall all aircraft safely.

Saturday all the aircraft was moved onto the pan.

4. Sunday was a blustery day, which caused problems for the prop aircraft and meant we moved Lindy to avoid a start with the wind aft of us.

13.Last to taxi was Lindy, no close up shots I am afraid, as I'm her chief, the camera is no were near her. It takes all my attention till she has been seen off.

14. As we were practicing for our run we had our chute recovery and brake check team at the other side of the pan.

XN looks stunning! Great story and sterling effort to keep those old girls going. Is the 'Pan' where the Sports Car days are held?
