Southport Air Show on 1st September felt more special this year as Andrew got up close and personal with three iconic WW2 fliers as they transited via Blackpool airport.
Even better news, they taxied up to halt outside hangar 42 where Andrew’s Spitfire simulator is based. In the case of the Mk22 Spitfire and Hurricane, they were temporarily accommodated in an adjacent hangar to his.
