A “tearful” farewell

admin Grumman Hellcat

Today we waved a tearful farewell to a true friend as Grumman Hellcat F6F left Duxford en-route Southampton to its new home in the USA. As friends may remember the Hellcat arrived in the UK in 1990 in a less than auspicious colour scheme before its true history was known and finally recognised.



Ready to  roll on  a frosty Friday  morning


…and we are  off.  With an update  from Friend  Chris  Gritt who  reports this evening:  “Have I just seen your Hellcat on the back of a lorry, heading down the M27?”
