Re: Warbird operators to be evicted from Duxford...?

There has been a lot of murmurings going on but no official conformation. Guy Black did do an interview stating that IWM didn’t see their collection of aircraft fitting into the long term goals of IWM Duxford. There’s a lot of suggestion it’s the hangarage agreement that’s the real issue. With opera...

Re: Duxford Summer Airshow - 1st & 2nd June 2024

I can't deny the F-86 is a fantastic addition, I do however hope that's the end of the aerobatic participants as I think it certainly has more than enough. Hopefully the show will be rounded out with other participantion.

Re: Duxford flying finale

I don't think it was a bad show, but I don't think it was a worthy celebration of 50 years of airshows at Duxford. It had some nice moments, the finale being an obvious one and it was nice touch that the Tempest was out on static but there was also a couple of misfires too. Personally, it could have...

Yes indeed. One of the best Duxfords I've been to in quite a while. For me it seemed to have reignited the traditional Duxford atmosphere we all know and love. Seemed very busy too? Getting in and out was easy and the line up was interesting for me as there were some aircraft I hadn't seen for a wh...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2023 - 16th & 17th September

Accepting the case that the Reds had to delay their display by 30 minutes to gain the necessary airspace (allegedly?) pray tell why that caused the Balbo to be "truncated" to quote the all knowing Ben? It's a fact that the excuse for a Finale minus the tail-chase could easily have fitted ...

Superb day so far, the Lancaster and B-17 flypast was a lot closer than expected and they stayed together for three passes too, the Swordfish and Catalina flypast? Not so much. 😅 Though it did fly with the Nimrod which was a nice touch. Just waiting for the air space clearence for the Red Arrows wh...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow 2023 - 16th & 17th September

As the 9a/c took off east to west, 8 of them turned south to start the tail chase. One of the two seaters turned north then straight back to the runway landing west to east - engine sounded ok but it was back safe and sound on the ground. The Spitfire in question, PT462 both engine ran and flew aga...

Anyone else a little bit disappointed with the flying list? It's not like it's bad but I just thought it would be better. Certainly better in previous years in my opinion.
