Duxford Pre Legends Updates - Weds, Thurs and Fri Complete

Post by FTS »

Hello all. I'm hoping over the next 3 days to be able to post regular updates of the comings and goings at Duxford, ahead of this years Flying Legends Airshow. Don't worry, I wont be posting constant shots of Classic Wings movements! :lol: Hopefully this thread will be of some interest, the stars will stay aligned and my kit keeps playing ball.

It normally takes me months to get around to looking at my shots from events, so this is very out of the norm for me, but good fun none the less.

Update 1
As of 11:30 on Weds 10 Jul 19

Re: Duxford Pre Legends Updates

OK, so the frequent updates thing just didn't work today. I couldn't get a gap in the flying long enough to sort anything, but I have a plan tomorrow that should hopefully speed things up so I can post more frequent updates, rather than the one big post.

Anyway, as I expected, today was pretty busy. Practice displays were flown by the Catalina, Corsair, Hawk 75 and Bearcat, with many others conducting air tests or flights in the local area. A pair of Buchons and the 'Grace Spit' arrived from Sywell in the afternoon, including their recent addition.

I also noticed a new Mark V? in primer which was outside ARCO on jacks, but I wasn't able to get an unobstructed shot of it.

Spitfire V 'evocation' (Full Scale Model) and was put in the H&H Car auction last month with a guide price of £30,000/£35,000. It didn't sell. The jacks are weights to stop it blowing away.

Yellow Classic Wings Harvard now sports Breitling markings.

Is Berlin Express up again? Just had a Spitfire flanked by two D-Day striped Mustangs OTT Chelmsford, heading SSW. Beaver went through a few minutes earlier on the same heading. A2A along the south coast?

Yes it went up with Hun Hunter. Apparently they've gone to Biggin Hill.

To be dismantled and put in shipping containers no doubt.

Spitfire went back over towards DX about 10 mins ago.

Yeah the Spit just did a very nice display here. Just waiting on the Dak to come back and then I'll probably make a move and try and get another update up.

Fridays Updates

Not as many movement today as there have been the last few days, but quality has made up for quantity. I've headed to the tank bank today for some different angles.

Final update of the activity at Duxford ahead of the Flying Legends Airshow. This concludes my 3 consecutive days of posting the movements there. I hope they have been of interest and for those going over the weekend, enjoy the show.
