North American T-6 Harvard N6972C arrived safely at Compton Abbas on 19th June after a 6 hour ferry flight from The Czech Republic. It will soon join the UK register as G-DHHF and be permanently based at Compton Abbas with the DHHFL fleet.

The airframe here is a SNJ-5 and is only two serial numbers away from David Gilmour's SNJ-7 (originally a -5 model). They must have emerged out of the factory on the same day!

Nice pics.

Looks like Compton has changed a fair bit, buildings wise, since my last visit there!

Sorry for the delay in replying to your comment. DHHFL are DH heritage Flights Ltd who operate the heritage air experience flights from Compton Abbas. The rest of the aircraft available are a Tiger Moth (G-ADXT) {that's where I come in!}, a Hornet Moth (G-ADKK) and a Chipmunk (G-AOTR). If you are in the area on Saturday 1st August there's going to be a vintage themed fly in day at Compton. Fingers crossed for a fine day!

Gorgeous looking aircraft, will definitely have to make the short flight from Bournemouth to Compton in the PA-28!
