Nice but I was more impressed with the Blenheim, Hurricanes, Spitfires and Gladiator formation. Far more representative rather than just one type.

Not sure about the Battle but the Beau's on the comeback: one at Duxford stalled by engines/props, and two or three in Australia where they're doing the engines on-site.

Great photos of a very special event!

Did not fly. I think brake issues as the wheels were pulled on Monday in their hanger.

An amazing location and amazing aircraft just too bad the lighting is brutal the whole day. You have done a wonderful job capturing these beauties!

Thanks for posting all these great photos Ken
I love the cat sequence.
They're sure are a lot of beautiful rare machines that visit Duxford on a regular basis.

Just realize I didn't post any of the Catalina that have the floats down. This was the first time for me seeing one in the air.
