After Flying Legends G-AIYR had just embarked with a new load of passengers for a short ride around Duxford when the starboard engine overheated and started a fire to the fabric of the wing. The fire was quicly extinguished, but destroyed much of the fabric. Fortunately no casualties of any sort other than the pride of the crew. I was happy to see the same aircraft in the air a year later.

Unquestionably my favourite aircraft of all time. Such a shame to see this happen but gladly nothing to serious happened so she returned to the air. For me these are always one of the highlights of Duxford.

Glad she returned to flight. G-AIYR was the first aircraft I ever flew on back in 1994 and encouraged my passion for aviation to grow further. Excellent capture of this mishap.
