    Did anyone get any pictures of 'Sally B' at Duxford as she came over with both engines smoking in the finale of the display?

    Great shots fellas
    There was a few damp eyes at the Legends show when Sally made her fly past trailing smoke (quite a few Veterans there civvies from the period)
    There is a bit of good news about the Sally I learned on Sunday.
    If you remember the old B was looking like it may be grounded due to new EU insurance reclassification which classed planes like the Sally B as commercial aircraft, the Insurance companies have come up with a really good deal for the next season on her premium and the EU have admitted an oversight regarding historic planes like the B. So with a bit of luck by the end of next year they will have amended the legislation for all aircraft of the Sallys class or historic planes.

    There wasn't a tear in my eye - and my brother's girlfriend was asleep, so I don't think she was crying. How she could sleep through the two B-17s taxiing right past us I will never know.
