- We are very excited to be being joined by T-6 number 8, with Rob Davies bringing his example, G-TVIJ, all the way from Headcorn, Kent.
- Also joining us from "down South" is the Piston Provost T1 XF690 (G-MOOS) from Yeovilton. The aircraft is operated in the capable hands of David Cooper and is hoped to be joined by Chipmunk 1377 (G-BARS). The aircraft carries an absolutely sublime Portuguese Air Force colour scheme, with this being the only Chipmunk in the UK painted in the vibrant training colours.
- Bringing some 1930's glamour to the event is good friend of the fly-in, Paul McConnell. He will hopefully be arriving in his stunning Beech Staggerwing (NC18023) from its base at Popham.
- Returning to the fly-in is Biggin Hill Shipping And Airlines, bringing several types to Halfpenny from their Biggin Hill home. For those of you that visited the unofficial fly-in Number 3, you'll be aware that they operate some of the most unique aircraft in the country, including the only Civilian Coupe in existence!
- For the second consecutive week we have another de Havilland DHC-1 Chipmunk confirmed, in the form of WP971. Built in 1953, this aircraft sports a very attractive overall silver and blue RAF scheme.
- Arguably the world's most famous taildragger, the Piper Cub, has been a very popular mount with various air arms throughout the world. The Cub has also been an exceptionally popular aircraft with civilian owners, with the aircraft most famous for wearing its bright yellow manufacturer colours. G-ATKI is no exception to this, with the aircraft being a fine example of a J3C-65.
- Our final taildragger aircraft in this update is the equally popular Cessna 120. The 120 is not too dissimilar to the Cessna 140, with production of the type discontinued in 1949. The type will be represented by G-AJJS, which was built in 1947 and has been operated in the USA, Venezuela and Guyana. She really has been around the world!
- We've got some exciting news to share with you next week, but you'll have to watch this space for confirmation. Don't worry though chaps, it's no Mitsubishi Colt....
