Duxford :: 29.X.14 :: Movers, shakers & pokers...

Some of the contents of H3 were aired briefly to allow the HAC Hurricane "Z5140" to be repositioned. Amazing how many people feel the urge to poke and prod aircraft when they are parked in the open during these moves. Engine cowlings off a Hurricane? No worries, just poke around the engine and wiggle the odd part that looks 'wiggleable'…

Who needs Gremlins when the great British public are nearby!…







Concorde has given birth!...

Don't worry, words were 'had' with the u/t Gremlins about fiddling with airworthy aircraft...

Duxford :: 8.X.14


Classic cars aplenty today as HH Auctions hit the museum. Quite liked this Jag...


Hangar shuffles took place with Sally B getting shoved into the north side of H2 for the winter.

One image of the contents of H3 while the doors were open - MH424 looking a bit tatty round the edges - maybe one day she'll be as pristine as the others in the hangar?…

Duxford :: 1.X.14 :: Through a different lens...

Just a selection of shots taken on the new Apple "BendiPhone" 6 while walking off my lunch. Images original size and, apart from the odd tweak for 'shadow' and 'highlight' in a couple, are pretty much as they came out of the phone. The camera is 8 megapixel and while not up to the 12, 16 and even 41mp (Nokia Lumia 1020) ones in some other brands it's certainly an improvement on the images from the iPhone 3G that I have been using since 2008!
