Today we waved a tearful farewell to a true friend as Grumman Hellcat F6F left Duxford en-route Southampton to its new home in the USA. As friends may remember the Hellcat arrived in the UK in 1990 in a less than auspicious colour scheme before its true history was known and finally recognised.
Ready to roll on a frosty Friday morning
…and we are off. With an update from Friend Chris Gritt who reports this evening: “Have I just seen your Hellcat on the back of a lorry, heading down the M27?”
