Nice to see another warbird in the air again. Our navy's FAA once had and airworthy gaggle of aircraft that, from memory, included DC-3, Firefly, Sea Fury, Tracker, Iroquois and Neptune. Sadly, I believe it was disbanded some time ago. Thumbs up to the RN for continuing to showcase their historic aircraft.
Cheers,
