A Few Hours at Hardwick Airfield, Norfolk - 20th May 2012

It's the first open day of the year over at Hardwick Airfield - home of Maurice Hammond's P-51D Mustangs Janie and Marinell. Low cloud and a waterlogged grass-strip runway preclude any Mustang flights, but there is a trip out for the Harvard and a visit from a Russian Yak-52. Fred's there with his ear muffs, the Van gets its first "famberly" trip out of the year and Grandad comes along too.
