The Museum of Flying's highly modified P-51D racer N332 Stiletto making its first flight for three years on August 30, 1992, in the hands of Matt Jackson. David Price is flying the museum's P-51D N151DP in the background.
WJ216 was the second of two pre-production Firefly A.S.7s. Note the deletion of the arrester hook in this T.7 version.
Soon to leave UK skies, perhaps for ever, Short Sunderland flying-boat G-BJHS is seen here over the Solent on August 3, 1989, while briefly wearing the sponsorship colours of Ryanair. As reported in last December’s Grapevine, the aircraft’s new owner Kermit Weeks will be taking it to Florida this spring.
Richard Paver photographed BAe's Hawarden-based D.H.98 Mosquito RR299 in September 1992. The aircraft will be taking part in a number of RAF 75th anniversary displays this season.
