In July, the mythical airfield of Duxford was once again prone to the passion of aerial "things" with the famous "Flying Legends". This major event within the world of aviation collectors was organised in a cooperation between the Imperial War Museum at Duxford and the Fighter Collection both located at this so historical airfield.
Do we really have to underline that this weekend was a success ?
As usual, the visitors came by numbers and were not only gratified with a magical airshow, but had also the opportunity to visit the various exhibitions, rifle the boots or having a walk on the flight line, allowing to see the magnificent machines from up close and admire all these players, classically dressed posing in front of the aircraft, like snapshots from back then. Everything was done to make the morning as enjoyable as could be before flying started.

As you can see, the possibility to have various activities done was laid out and for some people gave taste to have a flight in an historical airplane. To do so, you have "Classic Wings", a company established at Duxford airfield.
Classic Wings was formed about 25 years ago to operate pleasure flights for the general public. Two genuine vintage aircraft, a Tiger Moth and a Dragon Rapide, were put into service. They proved to be an immediate success and the fleet has gradually increased, so that in 2018 they operates no less than 3 Dragon Rapides, 4 Tiger Moths and since not a long time ago a Harvard. In 2017, over 9000 guests from all over the world flew with "Classic Wings", so the fleet is very busy between March and October. The winter is the maintenance period of the fleet, so that the "Classic Wings" team can start a new year of activities in the best conditions.
So after having "tested" the DH.89A Dragon Rapide in 2017, time had come to move on to an airplane within the "warbird" category, the mythical North American T-6 Havard.
Seen the number of customers and the intensity of the activities during the Flying Legends, "Classic Wings" operated two Harvard and it was on the AJ841 "Wacky Wabbit" that I had my flight.

Harvard G-BJST was built in 1953 by the Canadian Car and Foundry Company (C&CF) as a model T6J.It was built for the USAF under the Mutual Development Assistance Program (MDAP) due to Military officials calling for the introduction of legislation to expand suitable military training equipment.
After production in January 1953 it was allocated the USAF serial number 51-17110 with its original airframe number of CCF4-292 and sent in a consignment of 69 to Belfast Northern Ireland where they were reassembled and later flown to Italy. when the Italian air force received their new aircraft they gave it their own serial number of MM53795. It was sent to the Italian air force to provide training for their new emerging Airforce and was probably based at Latina airbase near Rome where it's sister aircraft now stands as a gate guardian.
Sometime during the 1970's it finished it service with the Italian Airforce ending it service as a SCIV (Ia Scuola Centrale di Volo (Central school of flight instructors) and then its history become's a bit sketchy. It appeared on the UK and on to the British register in December 1981 at Kemble.
After the military career:
From 21 December 1981 to 26 July 1994 To Victor Samuel Eric Norman, Gloucs with c/r G-BJST.
From 21 December 1981 to 26 July 1994 Painted as a Zero for the film Empire of the Sun.

From 30 November 2004 to 24 February 2005 To Classic Aero Engineering Ltd.
From 24 February 2005 to 11 August 2009 To Peter John Tuplin.
By September 2005 Markings Applied: KF729
Royal Air Force marks worn. Painted in the colour scheme of the aircraft HRH Prince Philip flew during his advanced training. His Harvard at that time, bore the five stars denoting his rank of Marshal of the Royal Air Force.
From 11 August 2009 to 22 July 2010 To Classic Aero Engineering Ltd, Thruxton, Hampshire, UK.
From 22 July 2010 to 15 July 2014 To Neil Thomas Oakman.
By 2013 Based at Duxford Airport, Duxford, Cambridgeshire/Cambs, England.
Operates with T6 Harvard Aviation Ltd for pleasure flights
15 July 2014 To Glenister John Fricker and partners

Having met "Neil" my sympathetic pilot, the crew chief had me strapped in and once the cockpit closed... what a wonderful sensation ! Starting the Pratt & Whitney Wasp and in the end, the sound inside the Harvard is not the same as from the outside. The distinctive rasping sound is not heard inside. Taxi to the holding point, line-up on runway 24R and off we went... just fantastic ! Superb sensations and above all, when the pilot handed me the controls. Off to the North of Royston to do some aerobatics and going inverted, back to Duxford with an magnificent view on the airfield. Downwind, with regrets, I handed the controls back to Neil. Descending left turn, short final overhead the M11 motorway and kiss landing onto the grass runway. As during the taxi run, it wobbles quite a bit and the pilot zig-zags the aircraft as the front view is almost nil. Back to the apron, engine cut and a head full of souvenirs (thanks to Danny ;-)).
A very recommendable experience ! If a flight in an historical aircraft is something for you : https://www.classic-wings.co.uk/

But not everyone loves or dares to fly... then you still can go shopping and why not buy that desk model of your dreams ?
Presently, the company "Bravo Delta Models" leads the market supplying some airports and other museums, of which Duxford. Throughout the years, the quality and originality of the offered models has greatly evolved. Indeed, the brand not only delivers plain wood traditional models, but offers also the "clear cockpit" formula, with quite some incredible interior detailing. From civilian to military models, ranging from the first war and its aces, to the inescapable French-British Concorde, through the famous U.S. Navy Sikorsky Seaking n°66, which recovered the Apollo XI crew. Moreover, if you have a personal wish, "Bravo Delta Models" can deliver your models to order.
If you happen to visit an airshow at Shuttleworth or Duxford, do not hesitate to pay a visit to "Bravo Delta Models". The sympathetic "boss" will answer all your questions. As I have a soft spot on the Spitfire Mk IX MH434 (which flew under de Belgian colours of 350 fighter Squadron, Belgian Air Force fighter school as well as the Cogea Nouvelle company), the clear cockpit model crossed the Channel to Belgium to find itself sitting enthroned on the desk of the editorial office. Do have a look at the website of "Bravo Delta Models" at : http://www.bravodeltamodels.com

The possibility was also offered to have a preview of the new documentary film "Spitfire" in the presence off Steve Milne, the producer and John Dibbs, the renowned aerial photographer.
Released to mark the RAF's centenary, this documentary brims with aerial footage of the plucky fighter that took on the might of the Luftwaffe.
This motion picture, which I am certain will become a must on the subject, will be released in September on DVD/BluRay support at the Batlle of Britain airshow at Duxford. Already viewable since end of July on streaming (Netflix, Youtube,...). You could also buy a limited edition of the book narrating the making of, signed by the authors and director, of this documentary, which we are eager to see in its entirety.

The Flying Legends Airshow
(Compilation os Saturday and Sunday)
 

After two well filled mornings, it was time to take up our place for the afternoon airshow... And what an airshow it was, with a beautiful summery background. Unfortunately the blistering temperatures were at times difficult to bear, also generating some undesired heat haze on the pictures. But let us get back to the program, offering various themes allowing us to admire dozens of "warbirds", each more beautiful and gleaming than the other.
First of all, the, what I called it, "R.J. Mitchell Ballet", with eleven Spitfires of different types, in formation fly-by's, and curved passages, to give a good look at the upper surfaces of the airplanes, followed by a splendid tail chase. Happiness in its purest state, for those who love this marvellous fighter still flying in 2018.
After that, we had the naval fighters, as the Chance Vought Corsair, of which 3 were present or the Bearcat, small, elegant and highly manoeuvrable plane.
Naval aviation was followed by the last prop driven fighter, having its glorious hours during the Korean war, the Hawker Sea Fury, of which 2 were flown together.
The Curtiss company took over, represented by a threesome right out of a their passed catalogue.
History is an integrated part of the mentality of our British neighbours and this drives them to preserve jealously (for our happiness) their heritage allowing us to have a view on the darker hours of the British isles, the Battle of Britain, staging Spitfires, Hurricanes and Blenheim, who bravely defended the English skies and change the course of history. This splendid theme was followed by the presentation of the Lancaster of the du BBMF (Battle of Britain Memorial Flight) bringing back to mind the exploits of Bomber Command.
We will not enumerate all the themes as the pictures will speak for themselves, but I would like to elicit three more demonstrations.
Coming from Austria, in force, the "Red Bull" team brought their Corsair, Lightning, Mitchell and most of all, their blazing and quite rare sight in airshows, the Douglas DC-6B. A demonstration combining power and elegance, stunningly under the sun reflections.
Then, what is not so common during the "Flying Legends", the combination of jet and pistons ! Proposed by the USAF Heritage Flight, which, for the RIAT, dispatched from the United States to Duxford, a F-35A. An airplane about which much is written, especially in Belgium.
The Lightning II made two passes accompanied by a Mustang and a Spitfire, a superb image where 5th generation technology hobnobs fighters from passed times. To conclude the display, the F-35A offered some more passes before heading back to its momentary home base.
Personally, the most beautiful and nostalgic theme, although not the most historically correct part, was the salute to the movie "The Battle of Britain", directed by Guy Hamilton in 1968 at Duxford. This display brought me back to my childhood, to the release of the film, which at that time I found to be simply magnificent and fabulous. How was it possible to have all these historical aircraft together for a motion picture ! Let us not forget, this production was filmed 50 years ago! And also amazing is the fact that some "stars" of the movie still fly today, as does MH434 (yes, once again...). Fair enough, the Me 109 and He 111 were not 100% German, but it was really fascinating. After the film, the Buchons were bought back and left neglected, but today, some of these aircraft are well alive and flying, so the display saw four Buchons, which is quite remarkable. Let us hope that an He 111 would be salvaged also in the future... To perfect the setting, the loudspeakers played the various musical themes from the film... shivers guaranteed... well at least what I am concerned.
So, here you have the summary of this "Flying Legends", once again, successful at all levels. After the finale, the famous "Balbo", time had come to hit the road back to Belgium, but also to thank the Imperial War Museum of Duxford and the Fighter Collection for having us with them for this unparalleled event... if, just if, you happen to be bitten by the aviation bug, you have to, at least, attend the "Flying Legends" !
SBAP wishes to thank particularly, Mss Esther Blaine, IWM Media Manager, and her team, for their always warm and heartily welcome and the facilities granted during our stay into the magical world of "Warbirds".
