This weekend will be busy for Norwegian Spitfire Foundation. The Shark will gets its airshow debut at Duxford in the hands of Lars Ness (Sat) and Eskil Amdal (Sun). Knowing Lars and Eskil, they certainly won’t disappoint the crowd! Look forward to a spectacular display! Other members of the foundation will be in attendance as well.
Norwegian Spitfire Foundation can proudly confirm that The Shark WILL BE at Flying Legends 2015. There’s been many questions coming our way about the Mustang attending Legends, and hopefully this will please many airshow goers!

Helgen 5.-7.september kommer vår egen testpilot Eskil Amdal fra England med Boultbee Flight Academy sin Supermarine Spitfire T.9 til Kjeller flyplass. Det blir lukket fag/pressdag i Småflyhavna lørdag 6.9, og åpen publikumsdag søndag 7.9. Opplev flyet og Kjellers andre veteranfly Harvard, Cornell, Tiger Moth, Chipmunk og Cub i luften over Lillestrøm denne helgen! Flyet er en opprinnelig en en-seter Mark H.FiXe High Flyer bygget i 1944. Det ble bygget om til dual-control to-seter under ledelse av daværende eier Paul Portelli i 2002 og eies og opereres nå av Steve Boultbee Brooks. Eskil er en av flere instruktører hos ham.
