I was astonished to se this Vimy fly directly over my home in S. Wales on its flight from Ireland in 2009. Prior to that in 1996, it was displayed at the PFA Rally and my first visit there was in Flitzer prototype, D692, where it was accorded a place of honour parked immediately in front of the Vimy on that occasion. I had the privilege if sitting in the Vimy cockpit and chatting to the pilots, (not the transatlantic original crew) one of whom later sampled the Flitzer, having expressed his desire to build one.

Later, Rupert Wasey of Hercules propellers flew formation with the Vimy in his own Z-21. Photographs are available on here if anyone's interested.
