Re: Flying Legends to cease at Duxford

Bit out of the way but how about Sywell ? I think its was a WW2 training airfield so could continue on the historic theme although not as famous as Duxford

VE/VJ Day

Bit of a long shot this one, but does anyone know if there is going to be a parade and flypast as in 2005 ? in/over London. I think Duxford was the staging airfield around Legends time for this as it was midway between VE/VJ Days ??

Thanks in anticipation

Talking to one of the crew at OW, the take off is suppose to be single file streaming and straight out to France, no full formation over Duxford. Duxford have this in their flying programme - 2.10pm-2.15pm Mass formation over IWM Duxford heading off to Normandy , but the timing for this contradicts...
