Airline is now under administration due corona virus (viewtopic.php?t=1444169) and hoping to be back after summer (good luck with that) but their Avros where about to be retired anyway,
But look at the video from around 15 mins and look how really close they are flying (to use the millitary term) twoship for a salute to their old home base. Is this even legal?
On another perspective listening to some of the pilots comments this might very well be their last active flight. The demand for Avro pilots (or any pilots) right now is zero and I sort of understand that you want to do a spectacular last flight.
