i think its a really good line up for the start of a year. quite often they roll out some of the small stunt planes which feel a bit filler, but this is a solid lineup

In no surprise to anyone who's seen it in the hangar at Duxford recently, and no doubt a substantial disappointment to anyone else, the Tempest has finally dropped off the list for the VE Day flying day...

Hopefully they'll get the niggles sorted out soon and we'll get to see it displaying in due course.

A most enjoyable day - both Spitfire displays being particular highlights, as well as the Beaver/Chipmunk pair (and of course Jersey Jerk's surprise appearance).

Harvard FE695 was an addition to the line-up, whilst Spitfire TE517 didn't make it and Chipmunk WG474/G-AOSY remained on the ground, on static display outside Hangar 2.
