Army Air Corp Historical Flight-Beaver XP820

I'm running a thread on my website on VIP aircraft that I photographed in Singapore in the 60's.


Here's a photo of Beaver XP820 picking up a VIP at Changi. She survives today with the Army Air Corps Historical Flight and I'd love to capture her on camera again and wonder if anyone knows of events that the Historical Flight might be flying this Beaver this year?

You can see the 'VIP aircraft in the 60's' thread at:

Best thing is to take a look at this, it gives displays for this year.

Yes I've looked at the Army Air Corps website-but haven't spotted any dates for the Historic Flight. Of course they are probably 'over stretched' a little at present! I see the 'Blue Eagles' helicopter team are off the circuit this year.

Speed Twelve.

Thanks for the update on the Historic Flight. Now I know that this old kite is still flying.
Added a couple more photos on my blog, of a Beaver from the '60's at Changi. Go to the Beaver XP820 item and read 'more' etc.
I'd like confirmation that the right side of the cockpit panel is 'all radio gear'.

I'd also better do 'Auster's' sometime!
