UK Airfield Visit

Duxford – Sunday 2nd June 2019 (John Tomlinson)

On arriving, we initially view the airfield from the motorway bridge to the South East of the field.

After a good look at the layout from that vantage point, we went to the car park and airside.

As I had been to the museum in November of 2018, I only went into hangars which I thought aircraft of interest to me would be located.

However this is what I have for Duxford, excluding the museum…………………..

The only two airfield request’s I have are:

Blenheim which we saw flying as we approached Duxford and never saw again?
Spitfire which appeared to be coded D-LE, not the gate guard aircraft.

Regards

John
