Duxford Flying Legends

Though many aircraft of the "The Fighter Collection" (TFC) were grounded this year, the Flying Legends Airshow 2009 offered many stunning views and was rated by many amongst the best events ever that Duxford airfield saw in its long history. Not for nothing this might be owed to the very first sighting of a formation flight of a Messerschmitt 109 and a Focke-Wulff 190 after many, many years...
