Arrivals Day 8 July 2011 The famous Flying Legends weekend needs no introduction, each year brings together a host of warbird fanatics and their machines. This year the star visitors were a pair of Mustangs, new to Europe, and an Australian P-40 restoration. The P-38 Lightning N25Y was also present after previous efforts in other years had kept the Duxford crowd eager to see her. French warbirds were also well represented.
This four day event, 27-30 January is the second of its type, only the final day is open to the public. Menara is the main airport, accessible to no-frills airlines and well connected to both France and Spain. There is a small flying club and a business jet ramp. The event is held on the northern, military side of the single runway and only a small portion is accessible to visitors. Photography is into the sun all day though the static display, although small and densely parked, is well lit, particularly in the morning.
