Spitfire and Gnats at North Weald

Postby TJJ on Mon 23 Apr 2018, 2:09 pm

A very busy weekend for us with nearly 230 movements on Saturday and 250 movements on Sunday. It was the first time this year that anything significant has happened while i was on duty. I spent most of the weekend in the Tower, but did manage to get out on Saturday to photograph the Spitfire PRXI and the Gnats.

G-MOUR went out first but had a generator problem

G-RORI was serviceable and went out three times, doing missed approaches on return.

On Sunday we had a visit by the 1944 DH89B Queen Bee G-BLUZ/ LF858 from RAF Henlow

Nice Set good to see the Queen Bee. i was lucky enough to get a flight in her when she was based at Rush Green some years back.
i have never been over to north weald as i didn't know the public were allowed in.

Nice set Trevor - those shots from the top end of the runway have such clean backdrops.

Did keep an eye open for you but didn't see you with your camera anywhere.
