23 is a great number, a considerable achievement indeed. Sure there could have been a few more, but when did anyone previously see that number of flyers together? Does the total number really matter at all?
I hope all goes well for the events over the next couple of days recalling the events of 75 years earlier.

I'm not complaining. 23 is a great effort.

I was happy enough with 8 on the deck at once in Prestwick never mind 23! not forgetting clipper Tabitha May, Miss Montana and That’s all Brother which also transited. Good job by PIK staff getting them and accommodating the visit.

Was a fine sight indeed and hopefully with the support plane still here most of them will be back I did hear the guy say on video they were storing gear in that new shed Northside
