Here are a few photos from PK’s display at Sywell today: It’s now safely back at Duxford, photo thanks to Fred:
Lots of brilliant photo reports around the internet. In brief a busy day for the team at TFC with test flights and display practices from the Hellcat, Bearcat Gladiator and notably Corsair (first time in the air since 2012) as well as other display participants. The P-40C had engine runs to whet the appetite. To add to the splendid photos …
View at Duxford this morning with the Fighter Collection Hawker Nimrod and Glostor Gladiator outside awaiting their pilots for a display at Old Warden this afternoon. Update, 13:30 weather conditions mean flights will not take place.
Gladiator was in the air today but no camera about. (picture from last year)
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 Wildcat Engine Gladiator Engine Sea Fury Spitfire Mk 1
Bearcat/Wildcat and Gladiator all out for runs today. Below is a piece of video caught by Fred of the Gladiator on Monday:
Arrivals: Moonbeam and Flying: today: Gladiator – more later
Successful engine tests on P40-F and Bearcat 🙂 Test flights in the queue, awaiting pilot etc. From Sunday we hope to have daily updates here.
Rob managed to push the video button on his camera while snapping away, this is part 1 of his video experience, worth it for the audio alone…
