I think I would agree with you there, but I wouldn't say no to a flight in it. :biggrin:

I see the Hurricane count is up to 8 if you include the BBMF, with Biggin Hill Heritage Hangers example being added :yahoo:
TFC Gladiator and P-36C have dropped off.

Still better than a Jet Squalus. :grin: I wonder if one day an owner might just be brave enough to operate a Buchon in authentic Spanish air Force colours, how refreshing that would be. :up:

And, as it looks now, weather seems to be ok. :whistle: :cool:

Last years Saturday was a complete wash out. I'm still gutted when I think back. nobody's fault of course, but I am still looking for someone to blame.

Think it's 7 bud unless I've missed one somewhere....which is more than possible.

BBMF Hurri plus...

Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIB 'Hurribomber' - Hangar 11

Hawker Hurricane Mk.I P3717- Hurricane Heritage

Hawker Hurricane Mk.I P2902- Air Leasing

Hawker Hurricane Mk.XIIa 5711 - Historic Aircraft Collection

Hawker Hurricane Mk.X AE977 - Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar

Hawker Sea Hurricane Mk.IB Z7015 - Shuttleworth Collection

Either way, none too shabby and that's without mentioning the 15 spits plus all the extra goodies. :biggrin:

And the weather forecast for today was scattered clouds and sunshine. It's chucking it down with rain at the moment.

Thanks Mike. Hadn't realised R4118 had come and gone. Shame but a nice replacement with Biggin's example.

It all seems to have gone quiet on the Biggin 109. I'm assuming there's no chance of a last minute addition?

Post on here the other day said it was seen on a recent hangar tour without the engine fitted.

Speaking with a BHHH pilot at the Biggin show the engine has been sent back to the States as there is an issue with the gearbox

Looking for some advice, not been to Duxford for a couple of years but I've always sat near the Tank Bank. Can anyone else recommend any decent spots? do you get topsides near the M11 end ?

Get there really early, then you may have a chance of a good spot....

I found opposite the American Museum to be good, but that was nice and dry for Flying Legends.
