Another Afternoon with Janie and Marinell the Mustangs, Hardwick, Norfolk - 16th October 2011

It's Maurice "Mustang" Hammond's last open day at the airfield. Clive tips us off when we're over there dropping off Suzanne and a bag of walnuts, and then offers to drive us over in his 1940s GMC 6x6 truck for a look at the two P-51D Mustangs: Janie and Marinell. It's the first time since Nosher actually flew in Janie, so it's good to get up close again, and Fred loves it as he's barely stoped talking about Mustangs ever since. As well as the P-51s, The Harvard and the Stearman are also flying around in the late afternoon sunshine.
