For reasons long since forgotten, I was unable to go to the 2006 Legends, so I went up to a gloomy Duxford on the Friday. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50085746816_f79b0abce8_o.jpg P-51C Mustang "Princess Elizabeth" 32157 G-PSIC by Andrew Shaw , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.co...

Re: Aviation- On This Day

Great to see those two from 1974 Andy. The Connie is quite regularly featured in literature but the C-118 is overlooked, even though I think it was the only in service IAT appearance as with the C-121, so great to see. The Connie also kicked off the great association between the show and the Pennsy...

Appropriately enough for 4 July, it's the bicentennial celebration show at Mildenhall.

Re: Aviation- On This Day

A bit of a late addition, but I realised that the Nimrod that tragically crashed in Afghanistan, killing all fourteen crew members on board was on static at the 2005 Waddo show. That event really marked the beginning of the end for the mighty hunter. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50068588678_b...
