I'm guessing she's off to Duxford tomorrow (Wed) - can anyone confirm an ETD or route (the forecast is clear skies over the North of England....)

If it's the same pilot who was over the UK in a spamcan last month, talking to various zone freqs, and they got permission for the flypasts. It should include RAF Waddington, RAF Barkston Heath / Cranwell and RAF Cottesmore (Kendrew Barracks). They flypast of RAF Cottesmore or Kendrew Barracks :'( is the one they wanted most as the aircraft was based there and departed for Normandy on 6th June 1944 http://www.rtn2014.org/whiskey7.html
