N356TE/TE356 has been de-registered and listed as "transferred to the UK". I'm led to believe she's currently at Biggin Hill.


Has been at Biggin since the summer, I am lead to believe she will return to the USA upon completion.

Air-to-air with TD314 & P3717 to the BoB Memorial

On Battle of Britain day I flew with Aero Legends in their Devon to the memorial at Capel-le-Ferne in the company of Spitfire TD314 and Hurricane P3717. An unforgettable experience made all the more special by the significance of the date, and the fact that the owner of the Hurricane was on-board as...

Re: Battle of Britain Day in Kentl.

I was on that flight and managed to take this photo as we passed the memorial, a very poignant moment.

Does look like this has the potential for a very good show :up:


Typo I think, it's probably meant to be Spitfire XVI, which would be TD248

Re: Pegs sold

I would love to see her as a IID but the general feeling is that she'll be converted to a two seater. Hawker Restorations have been looking at such a project for some time and the language used "will emerge looking very different" adds weight to that. Time will tell. They already have an ...

Re: Duxford Air Festival - Saturday 27th May

Out of interest, what focal length, shutter speeds, metering and modes were you using? I shoot with a Canon 100-400 lens, the shots of fast jets are right at the 400 end, most of the other shots are in the 250-400 range. I tend not to fill the frame when I'm shooting to avoid chopping bits of the a...

Duxford Air Festival - Saturday 27th May

My efforts from the Saturday of the show. The Mustang, Trig Team and Sea Vixen were highlights but the Rafale absolutely stole the show. A thoroughly enjoyable day, and once the rain had blown through, we had some lovely sky for backgrounds. The full album is here, including photos inside the hangar...

My second visit to OW, (the first was Fly Navy last year) and with the display lines almost back to normal, I have to say, I get it now. I can see why the Shuttleworth collection is held in such high regard among airshow goers. Great lineup, some lovely weather, excellent flying and the Spitfire and...

A visit to Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar 06/01/17

Hello all, I visited the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar yesterday for a hangar tour. The tour was immensely enjoyable and it was great to get up close to all the aircraft in the fleet, if you haven't been, I highly recommend it. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/524/31770749240_6d379cbdbf_b.jpg Biggin Hill...
