Mustang Monday with a throwback to the Battle of Britain airshow at Duxford in September 2019. Lars is seen here putting G-SHWN through its paces. Owned by Shaun Patrick and operated by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation at shows across Europe and the UK. Roll on better times so we can all enjoy these wonderful warbirds again.

Teas up! It was told the Norwegians halfways laughed at the British tradition of tea-time in the beginning, but it didn't take long until they took more advantage of tea than the Brits themselves!

Et gjensyn jeg ble glad for var instrument mekaniker Ulf Ottersen. Han står midt i bakerste klynge, uten lue og snur seg mot fotografen. I boka «Spitfire Saga» av Cato Guhnfeldt, bind 1 på side 259, -er en rekke av disse karene navngitt. Ottersen var senere arbeidskollega med min far i mange år på Atom reaktoren i Halden. Jeg traff han siste gang på 17. Mai i Halden i 2005. Han fortalte meg da om sin deltagelse på 60 års jubileet for invasjonen i Normandie året før. Han ble avvist fra flyger trening på Little Norway på grunn av fargeblindhet. Og ble da instrument mekaniker isteden. Han priset seg lykkelig over at luftforsvaret ga han anledning til å delta aktivt. I motsetning til hæren som ble sittende fast i Skottland og gå gå glipp av det hele. Ottersen hadde en bror som ble tatt opp til flygerutdannelse. Men som dessverre omkom under trening i Canada.

Jeg lurer på om bildet ble tatt på 332 sin Disp. på North Weald.

Nothing better than a brew .. 'Happy Brew Monday'

"Brews up lads!" 😁

Pure magic.

Luckily I’ve flown in this one

Getting the week started! P-51D Mustang G-SHWN fires into life. Owned by Shaun Patrick and operated by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation at airshows. She now wears the colours of Don Blakeslee’s Mustang of the 4th Fighter Group based at Debden in Essex.
Please check out the link below to find out how you can help to put Spitfire PL258 back into the skies over Norway, every little bit helps.
