Thanks for the information is the T55 of Air Atlantique Classic Flight flying? To this day I have not seen this one at any shows I have been to.
The Classic Flight Vampire returned to the air towards the end of last season, after being 'off the road' for a while. I think in late September / early October it actually made an appearance at Duxford (not on a display day) while it was testing.
Following the CF Night Photoshoot in December a problem was identified with the jet pipe by the engineers; new parts have been sourced and were fitted recently. Engine tests are scheduled for this week. The Vampire's debut is on May 29 at the RIAT Press Day.
One of the highlights for this season should be at the RAF Cosford air show where, all being well, the Vampire will display with the Meteor T.7 akin to the old 'Vintage Pair'.
Not sure of its other commitments at the moment - the two most booked items for this season appear to be the T.7 and the Anson.
