Having landed at Duxford to deliver the latest museum piece, the ground crew waited to see if Hoskins could make good on his promise to get airborne before the M11

Unfortunately, Hoskins was about 10 minutes too late in letting the load crew know his measurements were 'a bit out'....

20 seconds before Iceman reported " Mav's in a flat spin heading out to sea. "...
Fortunatly just as a C5 was passing at 5000 foot with the loading door open wide....

. and so TG2 was never made...
