Duxford February Bimbles ~ 16Feb17

Post by Pen Pusher »

P-51/Ferocious Frankie took advantage of the late winter warm weather and sunshine, for a very brief period, while Spitfire XIV/MV268 was moved into hangar 3 and its stable mate, P-51/Miss Velma was in hangar 2 receiving a bit of TLC. The aircraft in AirSpace have been undergoing a bit of early spring cleaning all week as the dust and cobwebs have been brushed and hovered away. Quiet outside flying wise although there was a visiting Chipmunk from Old Warden and an S-76C from Stansted doing circuits as I left. In the order taken.

The Mustang and Spitfire have left North Weald and the Sea Fury back to Sywell.

Good to see 824 getting a clean, she looked bloody awful last time I was there last Autumn.
