Looks like Mike Ling in the front of the Spitfire
You could be right as this was in an email from Ultimate Warbird Flights today: "A massive congratulations to Mike Ling for completing his first solo flight in The Grace Spitfire yesterday, We think the huge grim says it all!"

There was a piece on BBC Breakfast this morning about this. A paramedic said that it should be possible to carry as much kit as a motorcycle paramedic.

Re: Aero Legends 80th Anniversary Battle of Britain Airshow

I went to Headcorn yesterday and it was showery at times with gusts of up to 25mph, so credit to all that the show proceeded pretty much as planned. I witnessed several occasions where staff were having problems with "awkward" visitors refusing to comply with social distancing requests. There were d...

Thanks AD. I met him when he was flying the 2-seat Spitfire for us at Duxford. He's a really pleasant chap and full of interesting flying stories. Sell some more kits and complete the set by flying the Spitfire perhaps? Yes, it was great to be flown by such an experienced pilot. I would have loved ...

Re: 'Del Boy' Battle of Britain and BBMF documentary.

Thanks for posting, I've set the box to record. Sir David Jason mentioned in a recent TV programme that he holds a licence to fly helicopters and he seemed really interested and knowledgeable on aviation matters.
