Re: Remembrance Sunday, Duxford ~ 8th Nov20

From the FAQs
"If I am an ex-member of the military can I gain free admission on this date?"

Unfortunately, we do not offer discounts or free admission for ex-military personnel.

Re: RW382 in US markings

Have to say I was a bit unsure about the new scheme on TE308, in particular the shark mouth, but I am warming to it - probably why I think RW382 looks fine and dandy!
Looking forward to the Red Star Spitfire PT879 flying.
