Hangar 11 Collection – North Weald
Peter Teichmann’s Hangar 11 Collection are regular sights on the airshow circuit and I am delighted that Peter has invited us to visit his operation at North Weald to see the aircraft at close quarters and find out more about the challenges of operating these wonderful warbirds – Spitfire PR.XI PL965 ( the only airworthy Mk XI), Spitfire PT879 (the Russian Spitfire) and P-51D Mustang “Tall In The Saddle”.
We are limited to 12 places for this visit with donations (I suggest a minimum of £10-15) requested to the Herts and Essex Air Ambulance to be collected on the day. Visit timings to be confirmed but around lunchtime most likely.
