There’s an update on the museum website about the progress on repainting the MiG-27, which is now nearly half finished more details here!

It's in my list of notes for the Blog and I do have more pictures - sadly lack of time and effort on my part means that I still haven't registered a 'hosting account' anywhere! :oops:

I'll email some through to you Dan and I'd be happy if you could post them for me - somewhere!!

That is indeed a big difference since I visited with my son at the very end of August. Looking good, well done! I must stop in some time on my way to/from Yorkshire via Duxford. I suspect I would have much more time to consider my shots than was the case when he accompanied me. By the way, being able to go inside the Vulcan was for him the highlight of his school holiday (he is 13), even more so than seeing '558 fly at Shoreham after having missed that sight several times.
nothing is confirmed at a show until its u/c hits the tarmac or it is running in for its display.....

Thank you for your positive comments phreakf4 – we aim to please! :biggrin:

I was surprised myself the other evening at the difference in the appearance and it will be even better when it’s all completed. The Russian markings certainly give it an edge.

Nice to also hear that your son enjoyed his look inside ‘594! We rely on our volunteers to open the cockpits so we cannot always guarantee them being open – however we make a special effort to rally the ‘cockpit opening team’ during the school holidays and at special events. Hopefully there will be some open again during the Photo Shoot on October 17th and at Half-term at the end of the month!
