Let us know if you like this and we’ll try and find some more unseen vintage video for the week-end
So we are sitting in the excellent Duxford Aviation Society volunteers cafe last Sunday and long term TFC volunteer Gareth passes me a DVD and says “thought you might be interested guv”. Too right!
This is part 1. “Friends of TFC” will be able to watch the “air to air” stuff in part 2 later this week. Roll on Flying Legends then.
So if you are in the UK it is raining and miserable. Eric Goujon sent this link to cheer us all up and remind us it isn’t that long until July
Looking around the hangar and the winter maintenance continues, if you think you might like to volunteer with the Fighter Collection we will have an announcement of interest soon:
Volunteers cleaning Sea Fury parts
Spitfire Mk 1
As the first month of 2014 comes to an end work continues around the hangar. Since last week the Wildcat has come into the maintenance area.
While the Corsair and Hellcat await parts before undergoing engine runs.
The Spitfire mk XIV is well into the winter servicing programme.
We’ve been following the engineers work during the last week. Today it is the turn of the volunteers.
So first thing a meeting to decide on a plan of action in a rather chilly hangar as the heating was on strike:
Next off to clean the Hellcat
and Spitfire which had been covered with dust during the floor repairs earlier this week.
