Duxford September Bimbles~ *UPDATE 7~29Sep18*

Post by Pen Pusher » Thu Sep 06, 2018 4:58 pm

A few aircraft movement today but mainly war birds migrating south to Goodwood for the weekend and the Festival of Speed. I didn't stay for the Lysander leaving as a rain front was heading in, started when I got to Cambridge, and I didn't have my waterproofs with me.

The museum held their second 'Lets have some display flying and not tell any one about it on social media until late the afternoon before' afternoon. This time it was the ARCo based Harvard/Taz and Stearman and TFC's Bearcat and Corsair. With wall to wall cloud, light for photography was bad and the Stearman and Harvard displayed a bit high and didn't venture much down to the M11 end. TFC played ball with the Bearcat/Corsair arriving as a pair, displaying separately and finishing as a pair.

Very nice indeed all things considered, thanks for sharing.
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

As it's Battle of Britain Day, September 15th, I was hoping for a bit of Spitfire flying at Duxford. I wasn't disappointed as there were 6 flying. Mk.1/N3200, 3x T.9's/PV202/SM520/TD462, Mk.XVIe/TD248 and Mk.XVIII/SM845.

Being a gusty, blustery day I wasn't expecting any flying at Duxford BUT the Catalina flew off to Cambridge airport for a couple of hours crew training and a pipeline survey Cabri G2 helicopter flew in for a pit stop. Outside 5 hangar a team of contractors was putting together a Full Scale Model of a Typhoon, with a red RAF 100 logo on the tail, even though there is a real Typhoon just inside the doors of 5 hangar. Outside 4 hangar another team of contractors was putting together another FSM that had RAF markings and looked like a hideous lump of grey plastic and a reject from Thunderbirds. Duxford's latest Hurricane resident was tucked up inside 4 hangar.
