Loch Ewe Spitfire 6/7 May

Sat 29 Apr 2017, 10:45 pm

As part of a celebration of WW2 convoys using Loch Ewe the HAC Spitfire has been booked to display. It is rare to see warbirds in North Scotland and any help with timing,display location and base would be welcome. I expect that Inverness airport will be the launch point, Charlie Brown has been several times to the airport.
Event...includes ground Spit replica, air display will be PM both days

I wish I was up the North West Highlands most of the time but this is extra special.
I hope the weather is good for you if you're attending this event.
