For many pilots and aircraft owners Duxford
airfield is a kinda ‘special’ airfield. They have several
additional flight regulations, and most of all ( as we could experience
first hand ) it is outreageously expensive to operate from its grounds.
Of course that is just a sidenote, as it is also home to some of the
most exclusive warbird collections in the world, and we were the lucky
team to organise a photomission with some of those iconic birds.
Richard Paver, thé expert in Europe when it comes to warbirds
and photoflights, was our partner in this adventure and for this first
dedicated warbird project we were fortunate to fly with the Grace collection.
Six pristine aircraft with legendary names awaited us on the flightline
that afternoon: a Hawker Hurricane, a Hawker Fury, two Spitfires, a Buchon
and the P 47 Thunderbolt.
