    Sad to see that the airframe was consumed by fire, this aircraft had already been restored once from a wreck. I think it is the same one that came to Duxford for the Flying Legends a few years ago.

    Heartbreaking, just heartbreaking. We are fortunate that the beasts we choose to preserve can generally be resurrected from fire. As has been said, the main thing is the crew were ok.
