Thanks, we stood out in the wind at High Wycombe and heard and saw nothing so this is a small consolation.

Re: Parkhouse Aviation B-25 on the move?

Re: Parkhouse Aviation B-25 on the move?

Especially as the mail online link in their article says one of only 7 2 seaters which is probably correct. Oh and the actual price for the common public is £2750.
