As the virus situation continues it makes it impossible to get out and see those warbirds in action. So today we go back to the Friday before Flying Legends 2008 when a certain Mustang known to us now as G-SHWN was then N167F and being flown by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundations Lars Ness. She did look good in the Old Crow schemes that she wore during her time with the Scandinavian Historic Flight. The Mustang is now owned by Shaun Patrick and operated by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation at shows in the UK and Europe. Please if you can donate to the restoration of Spitfire PL258, no matter how small any donation would be very much appreciated and would help put a Spitfire back in the air with wartime Norwegian Air Force history.

On behalf of the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation we hope that you all stay safe throughout this difficult period. Hopefully sooner rather than later we can get back to normal and begin to enjoy those things we love to do such as airshows and enjoying the sights and sounds of those warbirds again. Here’s a look back to last year with Lars flying The Shark at Duxford. The Mustang is operated by the Foundation at airshows on behalf of its owner Shaun Patrick. The aircraft is based at Duxford under the care of the Aircraft Restoration Company and you can fly in this Mustang with Aerial Collective at Duxford. Once again stay safe everyone.

"One of the most important lessons I would impress upon anyone who flies historic aeroplanes now or in future is that you must have the humility to share your privilege with the public. If you have an arrogance about you, you aren’t doing justice to these aeroplanes and the history. We’re merely caretakers."
- Air Marshal (Retd) Cliff Spink

Excerpt from The Vintage Aviation Echo.

With this film I want to convey why vintage aeroplanes are important to us. Why Duxford is important to us, to the public and to history. What better way to understand history than to experience it together, see and hear it alive and flying.

P-51D Mustang 'The Shark' G-SHWN is owned by Shaun Patrick, operated by the Norwegian Spitfire Foundation, maintained by the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford and you can book a flight through Aerial Collective.
