Lexicans RV at Duxford, Cambridgeshire

Took the opportunity to meet Comjam a couple of weeks ago. He was on a visit to Air Expo 2015 and so a meeting was on the cards. When he advised me of his visit to Duxford, a mere 80 minute hop on my trusty motorcycle, the die was cast:

Cirrus arrives on a beautiful day, a little crosswind, but otherwise perfect.

An international incident over the price of aviation fuel in the UK was narrowly averted ;)

  1. Glad you could meet another Lexican.

    I wrecked my back two weeks ago. Someone leaned too heavily on their brakes for a missed turn. The people ahead of me, and behind the one who stomped the brakes, barely missed rear ending the miscreant when the miscreant turned off quickly. I almost made it by trying to split the lanes with someone in the left lane and missed it by about 8″. The bruises are almost gone, but my bike is a total loss. Just glad I wasn’t along with the bike. I was following about 5 seconds behind the people I hit. Sometimes you can do everything right and still get burned.

    I’ll get another bike in 6-12 months.

    Duxford is on my bucket list! That Cirrus has a US registration number – did it fly over there?

    • No Bill. The owners are Dutch but the aircraft is registered in the US. They are friends of Comjam and flew in the day before, to the event he was attending. All three of them then flew in to Duxford, which was a very short (30mins) hop from Sywell. Never been up close to a Cirrus before. Prettiest plane. All glass cockpit. Made me want to learn to fly one 🙂
