Remarks: Our ride for the day parked up at Duxford having arrived from North Weald for the autumn airshow. North Weald is only a 45 minute drive from Duxford, but flying in to the airshow sure beats being stuck in the traffic.
Remarks: Short final for RWY24R on airshow day, with lots of interesting types visible at this historic airfield. It's still early morning and the crowds are just gathering for what turned out to be the best weather I can remember at the September airshow.
Remarks: A rare look inside the cockpit of this historic aircraft. Havind made it's maiden flight in July 1958, the aircraft was delivered to BOAC soon after before making history on 4th October 1958 as the first jet-powered airline flight from New York to London. Later in her life she flew for Malaysia Singapore Airlines and Dan Air, before finally coming to rest here 1974 having clocked up 36,269 hours which was the most hours of any Comet built.
