Duxford :: 30/5/13

Modern fixtures such as visitor info boards have been removed and the bases disguised by oil drums and ammo boxes...

Wing Co Joe's is ready for the next air raid...

Set dressing is in place to hide modern additions to older buildings.
As Duxford is taken over by the film industry, some areas are being taken back in time. Barriers have been set out to isolate the area between H2 and H4 for filming, though at this time visitors still have access throughout the site.

Let's hope filming doesn't include "blowing up" any more hangars!!!!!!

Duxford :: Spring Airshow :: 26/5/2013

video


Amongst the highlights of the first airshow of the season was the formation flypast of the Red Arrows and the  P-47G Thunderbolt Snafu, P-51C Mustang Princess Elizabeth, Spitfire 1A AR213/P3708 and a Hurricane Mk X AE977/P3886 of "Eagle Squadron"...

Earlier in the day, opening the show, the "Eagle Squadron" put on a fourship display...

Later they escorted B-17 "Sally B"...


As I was deployed on the Jet Pan for the duration of the Flightline Walk, I was unable to take any photos of the static aircraft. Apologies if I added a splash of hi-viz yellow to your photos while you were trying to snap the "Eagle Squadron" aircraft on the ground!!

AR213 - repainted for the Eagle Squadron anniversary

 A big brown shipping container is parked outside H2 - speculation is, it contains a princess...

Meanwhile, at about 3.20pm this pootled around over the north side...
