    A visit late on Sunday afternoon to Hardwick co-incided with one of
    the monthly open days at the 93rd BG Museum (open 3rd Sunday in the
    month May to October)

    As luck would have it Maurice Hammond had all his aircraft outside on
    Display on the nearby Airstrip - the undoubted highlight was the first
    public appearance of his new P51D "Marinell" .

    The aircraft has recently been completely restored and has undertaken
    engine runs and taxying trials within the last few days. It is just
    awaiting paperwork before it takes to the air once more.

    The aircraft is registered as G-MRLL , a North American P51D-5-NA. It
    wears the markings of the 339th FG, 504th FS , as "413521", 5Q-B, and
    is named "Marinell"

    Even the sun played its part allowing the followwing images to be
    taken (amongst several others !!)
