Unbelievable, fantastic and phenomenal are not words that describe this experience, just had two wonderful days at Flying Legends which was a bucket list item and the aviation gods whoever they may be smiled down upon Duxford last weekend!
The best of a bad bunch, bit of a taste below more to come……

The “c” wing appeared in October 1941. It was a “universal” wing that could take eight .303in machine guns, four 20mm cannon or two 20mm cannon and four machine guns. Each cannon now had 120 rounds, compared to the 60 of the “b” wing. This wing was used on the majority of Mk V Spitfires, normally with the combined cannon and machine guns configuration. The “c” wing also had the capability to carry two 250lb bombs under the wings, or one 500lb bomb under the fuselage. If machine guns were used, they were used in the outboard position. The “a” and “b” wings were not used after the Spitfire V.
