Re: Special Tail

Apparently this aircraft spent quite some time doing circuits over wisbech with the undercarriage only part deployed, one side fully lowered, one side semi retracted and nosewheel fully retracted. Looks like crew would have had to wind the wheels down.

Re: Duxford Friday 27th May

An enjoyable couple of hours but the drive home to Selby was awful. 5 hrs for what is usually a 2hr 15min run.
I wont be doing that again on the Friday of a bank holiday weekend!

Last four engine jobbie to operate into or out of here was a Halifax in 1945... residents may be reporting a ghost bomber!

Re: DTV Airshow cancelled due to Shoreham accident

I believe the only classic jets flying at DTV were going to be the gnats, Vulcan and Swedish Histoic Flight. I think the Gnats were canelled due their earlier accident. The Vulcan is not affected by the new CAA regs as its display is non aerobatic. It already flies on a Permit to Fly which expressly...

Re: Church Fenton Air Display?

I wish them luck. I would love to see this as an annual event as Im only eight miles away. I think the access roads will be an absolute nightmare though. Having said that, there is a railway station at Church Fenton So there is scope at future events for train/shuttle facilities.
