September 22nd and 23rd 2017.

Two days that will live in the memory for evermore.

Friday 22nd whilst down at Headcorn where i voulanteer for the amazing Aerolegends team I was afforded the honour of flying to Duxford in Spitfire T9 Nh341 with none other than Parky at the controls.

Beautiful blue skies for the trip with the thrill of a run and break over the airfield at North Weald before repeating the exercise as we came in to Duxford.

 

The excitement of the previous day ramped up even more on Sat 23rd as we were airside at IWM Duxford for the superb Battle of Britain airshow where in my opinion we saw the best air display for many years whith 13 Spitfires and 7 Hurricanes plus the lovely Bristol Blenhiem and many more wowing the crowd with stunning displays.
