    Good stuff. What's happened to this particular aircraft? Unless I'm mistaken, this video is some years old and I'm not aware if any currently flying Blenheims.

    Andy, it's almost finished restoration at Duxford, to Mk1F standard, with the 'short' nose. Just hope it doesn't crash for a third time!

    Oh I see. I saw it at Dux in 2010 and didn't realize it was the same one and that it had crashed a couple of times. Thanks for the info Terry.

    "Same one" is a tad misleading. Carries the same registration but, like grandad's old axe that's had 2 new blades and 3 new handles, this one has an entirely new fuselage, totally rebuilt engines, wing and undercarriage components replaced etc etc etc. :)

    Yeah, I have an Ian Allen aviation special magazine which has a pic of the MkI nose in automotive configuration - truly an amazing find!
