Something other than Spitfires...

There are other aircraft at Duxford...
"Wacky Wabbit" was operating today...
And the new Tonka ZA469 is almost fully back in one piece.



Early morning 'drive-by'...

Well, not that early, but on the way over the Bailey Bridge stopped at H3 for a couple of Spitfire related snaps...

MH434, EE602 and MV268 to the left...


...and to the right PT462 modelling her new spring collection...
Note her aerial has been slimmed down. And a close up of the 253 Sqn crest centre now adorning the tail.
Also in the hangar, NH341, TD314, PV202 and BM597.
Later after lunch PV202 and NH341 were spotted out in the sunshine...

What if... #1

Considering we don't even have a Malcolm hood Mustang in RAF colours, with the current rise of two seat warbirds, Spitfire T8/T9, Hispano Buchon HA-1112-M4L (G-AWHC), Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-12, Fiat G-59 4B, not to mention the Mustang P-51D & TF-51D, how about a Mustang T.III?...

I can but dream...

Happy 82nd birthday...

On 5 March 1936, the prototype Spitfire K5054 took off on its first flight from Eastleigh Aerodrome (later Southampton Airport) with Captain Joseph "Mutt" Summers, chief test pilot for Vickers at the controls.
