I've used the shuttle bus from Cambridge station a couple of times now. The early ones aren't too busy, they're double deckers so plenty of seats! After the show they get quite busy. The last one is at 7:30pm so no rush.

Coming from down under and hoping someone in the know may had an idea if the
Gladiator is repaired and my appear during the show? If not is it possible to view her,
special as she was once flown by a New Zealand ace Cobber Kain the first ace of WW II.

Thank you.....

My guess would be the Gladiator is unlikely to be ready to fly for this show, as it arrived in a container from France some time ago due to some tech. issues.

However, I often see people during the show that ask The Fighter Collection staff in their hangar if they can have a closer look so I'm sure you'd be able to do that.

Berlin Express has dropped off the list. Doesn't seem to have much luck that aeroplane.

It flew at Duxford though, so I assume it's developed some other issue that will keep it grounded for the next month.

God damn it!

My first Duxford experience was last year, got tickets for the Sunday. Could not wait to see this P-51, i followed its journey over. Then it had its accident so i missed it.

Now it seems again that it won't fly. Bad luck eh. Maybe one day i shall see it fly.

If it won't be a flyer, static on the flightline would be a very nice second best?

No word on the IL-2 as of yet! That would be something different to see, so i hope he does indeed make it.
