Compton Abbas Fly-in 17/6/17

I visited this event yesterday which I thought was very good. Does anyone out there know the registrations of their T-6 Texan and their Stearman? Incidentally the T-6 pilot gave a very spirited flying display that would go down very well at Old Warden if they could be persuaded to fly up there.

Texan was possibly G-DHHF (USMC - 72 - JF)

What scheme was the Stearman in?

Think the Stearman was "14" so that makes it G-ISDN unless there is another 14.
Lovely location....

Thanks guys. The Stearman is '14', and is in USAAF blue and yellow.

I've managed to figure out that the Texan is a SNJ-5, N6972C.

The Texan has been on the UK register since November last year. G-DHHF
