Duxford Monday 8th July:

North Weald based Jet Provost T.3 XN637 / G-BKOU was training at Duxford this morning.
It has a distant Duxford connection, arriving by road for Sandy Topen's Vintage Aircraft Team in 1978. Departing in 1983, it flew again in 1988 and has been active ever since. Now the only T.3 flying.

Also with a Duxford connection, Breighton based Staggerwing G-BRVE (ex TFC) is back for maintenance with ARC:

Duxford Thursday 11th July:

Catalina 'Miss Pick Up' needed a little TLC in Hangar 2 this morning, so a few inmates had to sit in the sunshine for a while. Tempest II, P-47, Mustang and Spitfire XIV (that would make a fine formation).

Was just wondering whether Spitfire Mk.XVI TD248 is still based at Duxford and if not where? I dont recall seeing it recently...

Most recent entry on Flight Aware shows it at Humberside airport in April.
