A day off, well almost.

A quick look in the hangar this morning. Kym was sorting out the fuel feed problem on the P-39, with Martyn. Andy was bashing rivets on the Beaufighter tailplane. Dave and Roy were busy with the leaking oil cock on the Glad. James was hidden in his corner and Bob, Fred and Peter were were sorting out the intricacies of the Automatic Timing Device modifications on the Spitfire XVIII.

Ten o'clock saw me bound for London and the Guild of Aviation Artists, Aviation Paintings of the Year in the Mall Galleries.
Roger Murray had on show some stunning paintings of Spitfires.

TFC's friend Roger Middlebrook won the Alex Henshaw Trophy and also exhibited a painting of three Gladiatoes in formation, including our own, N5903.

Bumped into Sid Chambers who is the artist who produced the Friends prints, he exhibited a pencil sketch of a Lysander.

Many of the exhibits showed Duxford from all angles, in and out of the hangars. If you want to see more, visit or go to the website at:-
