Fishburn (Morgansfield) Airfield Friday 5th February 2016

        A couple of new residents arrived here midweek for the recently formed Aircraft Museum at Fishburn,  the old De Havilland London Colney resident Dove D-IFSB and an ex Swiss A/F Vampire, which i believe they got from Duxford??  anyway the one that interested me was the Dove, so thought id try and get some shots of it before it got dropped off the low loader and put back together..  luck would have it though as just as i pulled up they were just putting the straps on it to give the Dove possibly its last short flight!!  After speaking to a couple of guys, they told me they hoped to get it back up to taxi standards by the end of June/early July while also giving the Dove a new lick of paint but staying in the old Calibration colours from the pervious owner,... so best of luck lads with the project....

 Fishburn (Morgansfield) Airfield Friday 11th September 2016 

   A quick visit to see how the Dove D-IFSB is looking, now that is been put back together and a new coat of paint, 'must admit looking very nice!  not much else in as it was quite windy, but in one of the hangers was resident Vans RV-6 EI-EWY.  Then off to Sunderland Museum to see the Trident...
