Navy Wings on BBC2, Tuesday 19 March at 1830

Navy Wings will be featured in a new episode of Michael Portillo’s Great British Railway Journeys on Tuesday 19 March on BBC2 at 18.30. Whilst flying in the Harvard he is joined in formation by the Navy Wings Seafire Mk XVII and Chipmunk and later visits the Navy Wings hangar at Yeovilton. A 2 minute excerpt from his flight is below:

Interesting to see that the left main gear of the Seafire was not fully retracted on the initial join up. :-?

Yes, noticed that. Surely that should have indicated in the cockpit and put an end to the formation bit whilst he sorted it out. Presumably being a late mark the u/c operation would be hydraulic as opposed to flying with the left hand and pumping with the right hand as per the very early versions.

All together now, to the tune of a Sea Shanty
