The Duxford Air Festival in May gathered a group of 8 Harvards to mark the 80th anniversary of the Harvard. The 8 flew in three sections; a box of 4, a vic of 3 and a solo machine performing aeros above. The formation sections broke into tailchases front and rear to hopefully provide a dynamic sight and sound. The aircraft involved included the last Harvard to serrve with the forces being the Boscombe Down test aircraft, famous for “chewing through” a drop parachute as well as the caemra ship for the TV series “Piece of Cake”. A number of the pilots were HAA members completing the presentation of the Conrod Trophy earlier at the pilot briefing.
