I know exactly what people will respond with when I say this but there's nothing that hasn't been seen before. Yet.

Quite a bit of negativity towards the fact it's a Buchon floating around on social media. Which is a shame be cause they are stunning birds in their own right.

Can't please everyone.
There's still plenty of time for a few surprises.

The enthusiasts' hot take on Buchóns always amuses me. They're historic machines in their own right, now largely wearing Battle of Britain film schemes which are historically accurate for the respective aircraft, and look absolutely immense (particularly as a pack of raptors).

Besides, when Red 7 flew at Legends 2015 it was met with near silence from the people who had demanded a DB-powered Messerschmitt for years. Now yes, Red 7 is a DB-powered Buchón, but are we really going to split hairs over that? It looks and sounds the part, so...

Couldn't have put it better myself. Personally I'd love to see just one in authentic Spanish colours, but I welcome Buchons and the more the merrier!
A DB-powered '109 was always on my "want to see" list and with Red 7 I believe I did just that!

Doesn't look like the Flying Bulls will be at Legends this year as much of their fleet is at an air race event in Hungary.

The buchons were one of the highlights for me last year. I’d love a dB powered machine but the buchons are equally welcome

Intriguingly, it actually says MORE THAN four buchons if I’m reading it correctly.
Similarly a quote about the Horsemen alludes to they may not be flying their ‘usual’ steeds. All very vague but intriguing none the less ( intruiging being my word of the day today )

Looks like Air Leasing are restoring a couple more buchons: http://airleasing.co.uk/?page_id=50

Could the debut Spitfire be MJ271/Silver Spitfire?

I'd say that's the right word! It was the thing that intrigued me the most reading through that. Of course it could mean anything.

Their regular types other than 'stangs are Bearcats and P-38's, either of these I would be thrilled with, but both of these would require a lot of crating, shipping and uncrating.
They have done Spits before so, although enjoyable, would not be as big an announcement as the aforementioned.
Like I say it could be anything, maybe Buchons or other types already resident, but the prospects are tantalising.

There could also be a formation-face-off between the Horsemen and Ultimate Fighters :lmao:

On a side note has anyone got and idea when the CR42 is due to fly? It looks like it's been pretty much finished for ages now.
