Well you know what we mean. Line up on the ramp this morning ready for Shoreham
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 …
The busy week continues: Yesterday the Bearcat returned from an extended break in France, the TF=51 has nearly completed engine tests after arriving on the G-register, the P-40F was out on line for an engine check while highlight of today was the Nimrod up for a test flight with Mr Goldspink.
Saturday Morning 09:45 After an engine test by Martin. The Bearcat, with droptank refitted departed for France en route to La Ferte Alais via Le Touquet with Brian Smith at the controls. Spot the difference!
Friday the 30th May and the Fighter Collection had one of those busy days.
No pictures but great to see the Hawk out and about (up in the air three times) today and the Bearcat with drop tank attached air testing as well!
Bearcat is packing bags and preparing to go on a spring holiday to France.
We’ll try again, Bearcat on a check flight today, this time with pictures!

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 …
