DUXFORDfotoGALLERY ~ 19Sep17

This close to an air show I wasn't expecting it to be busy, and it wasn't. PV202 was passenger flying, TFC's Hawk 75 went up for a handling flight and some aerobatics and the Wildcat was also due to fly as was the HAC Hurricane. Amongst the GA visitors was some oldies but goldies like a very pretty 1942 Stinson V77 Gullwing/NC50238, a 1948 Aeronca 15AC/G-AREX and a bit more up to date 1959 Focke Wulf (Piaggio) P-149D/D-EARY. In the order taken.

RAF Museum, Hendon ~ 09Sep17

As I was in central London on Saturday, I had a quick detour north to RAFM Hendon to get some record shots of any changes since my last visit in May. The Grahame-White Hangar is closed until the 15th as they are landscaping and laying cables around there. In the Milestones Hall, the Buccaneer was outside as the Mosquito and P-51 were being dismantled and taken down from their plinths. Apart from the Bleriot and the noisy/pointy Typhoon, all other aircraft have been taken down from the ceiling. The Hoverfly and the silver Tempest are in the main building but couldn't see the Hind anywhere. In the order taken.

A very busy Wedensday at Duxford. The Fighter Collection were out to play as some of their aircraft are off to Goodwood for the weekend and pilots were getting in some aerobatic practice. The Anglia Aircraft Restorations aircraft were on the move to Sywell as they are flying at the Victory Show at Cosby at the weekend. TF-51D/'Miss Velma' was briefly outside before being packed into a container for it's journey to Fighter Rebuilders at Chino for a rebuild following the off airfield landing during the Flying Legends air show. There were quite a few GA visitor but there were three that caught my eye. In the order taken.

The weather was a bit iffy at the start of the day with low cloud/fog/mist enveloping Duxford. Fortunately by late morning it started to clear and by early afternoon it was blue sky and sunshine and very warm. Highlight of the day was the visiting Breitling DC-3 that had stopped off at Duxford on its round the world tour and was due to leave for Biggin Hill. Many thanks to the crew for the close up access. Spitfire TD314 flew off to Headcorn and N3200 and PV202 were flying their usual with Classic Wings. Photos in the order taken.

Another wall to wall sunshine day and no haze. With no wind it was very warm but a bit of a breeze did spring up in the afternoon to take the edge off the heat. Visitor car parking ended up on the grass inside the museum but the increased visitor numbers could to have been down to the Duxford Summer Motor Fest being held and after a quick browse there was only an American Police car that caught my attention. Lots of flying with Classic Wings doing their Fly in and Fly With a Spitfire through out the day. TFC Mk.V Spitfire went up for a couple of flights and the T.28 and Blenheim went up the road to Little Gransden for their Air Show. The B-17 returned from their weekend at Dunsfold and parked up on the grass to drop off passengers and then went off to Little Gransden as well. Photos in the order taken.

Despite the wall to wall blue sky and sunshine and the temperature in the low 20's, there was high, thin cloud which made lighting conditions for anything other than ground to ground photography atrocious. The Buchon and Spitfire MH434 were off to Dunsfold for the weekend air show and the Catalina was off to Clacton for their air show.

It wasn't raining so I went to Duxford. It was quiet apart from the visitors who were still queuing out of the visitor centre at mid-day to get in. Catalina was out for an engine run and the two-seat Spitfire's were flying. PV202 with Classic Wings and NH341 was off to Sywell.

The weather at Duxford last Saturday was in three halves. The morning and late afternoon was blue sky and sunshine. The bit in the middle was torrential rain. The number of aircraft booked in for the Light Aircraft Association Bonus Day didn't quite match the number that turned up but that was probably down to the forecast rain that duly arrived. P-51D/Sharkie flew late morning and arrived back just ahead of the rain front. The HAC Fury was due to go up to East Kirkby for their air show but cancelled due to the rain en route. The HAC team took the opportunity to move the DH.9 to the other side of the hangar where it will be rigged for flight. Many thanks to Howard for the cockpit access. Although you could see blue sky way off to the west, it was still raining when the Boultbee Spitfire arrived from Goodwood for some maintenance at ARCo and the T.28 Fennec fired up and did a practice display over the airfield in drizzle before heading for East Kirkby. By the time the Blenheim came out to play, it was also heading for East Kirkby, it was back to being quite warm in the sunshine. In the order taken.

It's not just mad dogs and Englishmen that go out in the mid-day sun, American Horsemen do as well as just after 12 o'clock they fired up their thoroughbreds and cantered up to the Alpha hold and to stand near to three P-51's doing power checks is a noise and vibration to experience. They flew off to the north for a practice display but returned early and Frenesi was returned to the stables, hangar 2, with a technical hitch. In the order taken.
