Currently in the UK doing a driving tour seeing the sights, my wife is very tolerant to my passions so hope to see as many old aeroplanes as our travels allow. Been to a couple of museums and have two airshows lined up.
Had a great couple of hours at the wonderful named Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent, loverly weather, hot, beautiful location and magnificent machines, doesn't get much better!
This Dakota dropped paratroopers during DDay.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, this is a Canadian Harvard with the open canopy frame?
You can do flights in the Dove with the Spitfires alongside.

Stunning, you can’t beat Blighty on a sunny June day, its a big contrast to the miles of featureless dairy farms in NZ. Spitfires and Hurricanes wheeling over the hedgerows and Oak trees are straight out of a boys own novel.
Better to be thought of as stupid, rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt
Yeah this is a bit of a bucket list trip for me, I became hooked on warbirds in the late 60's when my Dad took me to see the premier screening of the Battle of Britain in the old Savoy picture theatre in the corner of Christchurch square.
Just to be in Kent an see the names is amazing, Spitfires and Hurricanes, as you say, wheeling over the hedges an Oak trees on a beautiful English summers day, things that dreams and bucket lists are made of, I'm a lucky lad!
To top all this off a Kiwi was driving the Hurricane P3717?
