Perhaps we could arrange such a visit, as I for one would be interested,
as for ww2 planes, have I ever told you about the day I flew in PV202 from Duxford to Goodwood ?

Probably the best day of my life, including marriage, kids, grandkids,

Duxford? Yeovilton? Both?

Both are about 1 Hr 50 from Guildford, but Duxford is North, so easier for the Men Of Kent? Also we've got a trip to Cheddar planned for this year.

So, anyone for Duxford? http://www.iwm.org.uk/visits/iwm-duxford
We'd need to avoid these dates:-

Duxford Air Festival - Sat 27 May 17 – Sun 28 May 17

Flying Legends Air Show 2017 - Sat 8 July 17 – Sun 9 July 17

Duxford Battle of Britain Air Show - Sat 23 Sept – Sun 24 Sept 17

I'm thinking maybe an early trip - March?
