  Flying Legends - Duxford, Cambridgeshire 10/11th July 2004
 

Review - Highlights of The Fighter Collection's 2004 Flying Legends display at Duxford included several UK airshow debutants, namely the Polikarpov I-15bis, TFC's newly restored Bell P-39Q Airacobra and the Swiss based Lockheed C-121C Super Constellation.  The Chabbert family's immaculate Lockheed 12A Electra Junior also starred, making its first appearance at a display outside France for many years.
