Duxford :: 26/2/14

First real chance I have had to have a wander around post storm closures, and self imposed exile from "The Mess" (also known as taking in my own nosebag!), due to the current serving system of order then wait 10 to 15 minutes for your meal to be made...
Site now back open again since the second bout of Airspace roof peeling - I didn't venture into AS but stuck my head into H3 & H5 for a quick look.

H5 - BBD being stripped back to bare metal. Seems a shame after the work done previously...

H5 - A Cold War warrior in from the cold?

H5 - engine seized? Chop the props then...

H5 - parts of the Shack are spread around the site like the 'foil' from the roof of Airspace...

VC10

Bldg 66 - tail of AB910 progressing slowly - soon to be mated to the rest of the fuselage. See 15/11/13 post re this aircraft.

H3 - "Ferocious Frankie"

H3 - Good 'ol Buccaneer...

H3 - Once proud bird of the Royal Navy, Hunting subs in the deep blue sea....

H3 - lots of pics of this when it was 'revealed' - sadly I was busy in Bldg 4...


H3 - trying out low angle with the wide angle...


A rather sad sight - slowly being stripped down for "storage" in H5, but exiled to the jet pan to make room for the quilt show... Ah hem....
