Re: Nov 2021: IWM Duxford is to dispose off Grumman Avenger, Mil Mi-24 Hind gunship plus historic glider...

Trouble with the IWM is that their policy dictates that every exhibit must be ""genuine" so the TBM was always going to have to go one day. Other museums are happy to take an aircraft and paint it in a 'non-original' scheme in order to tell a story, and I'm certain that it could find a good home som...

Re: Oostwold Airshow 24/25 May 2015

It could be just because Moonbeam has been on maintenance and hasn't got its new Permit yet...anyway, I can confirm that our TF-51 will be there, along with Spitfire XIV and V, and the Corsair. I have the Permits form the Dutch Government here in my hand... :mrgreen:

Re: Paris CDG: a Saab 2000 flight that did not end very well

The aircraft slid along the runway on the upper nose gear leg after the lower portion (with wheels still attached) separated. Big damage to the forward fuselage, all the skins are heavily creased. Looks like it will be out of service for at least a few weeks.
