Imperial War Museum Duxford
A slight change to tomorrows Showcase Day flying list. TF-51 Mustang 'Contrary Mary' is unfortunately not available and we have aerobatics from a Yak 50 instead of the Bücker Jungmann. Still a wonderful array of aircraft to enjoy. We also are expecting a number of iconic de Havilland aircraft to attend this event so look out for these across our airfield.

Following the Showcase Day today at Duxford, an aircraft based at the airfield suffered an engine failure and has made a forced landing away from the airfield. The aircraft was not part of the display and at the moment there is no update on those on board.

Looks like it was indeed the Sea Fury from Norwegian Spitfire Foundation. :( Hopefully the pilot didn't sustain too bad an injury.
