Mig 15 and two vampire

About 16 10 hours this afternoon the mig 15 and two vampires came over mkt harborough in a nice sweeping echelon to port the mig was the lead aircraft, so as they were travelling west to east where was the airshow they had justcome fro. Oh and 15 minutes before them a spitfire the same way and 5 minutes after them another spit, my own display brief but nice :clap:

Is it actually the case that they would go to Duxford five days early? If you draw a straight line between Southport & North Weald (where they left their transport?) I noticed Market Harborough is only 4miles NNE. of that line, hence the sweeping bend? :dunno:
