It is indeed, I've just got home from day 1, I will be back tomorrow. Sadly poor weather during the days running up to the show has had a major impact and the line up is nowhere near what it should have been. Many of the European acts didn't make it. However I still enjoyed myself and there was some very nice flying from the Duxford favourites, and yes I got to see the Peashooter in the air. Also that shiny P-40C that finally made it over from Chino. It actually cut the crowd where I was standing today and shot over my head at full pelt, really low.
Niice! And the raised spine behind the pilot's head was to protect him because they flipped over alot! Also, that tower looks like it has been there since before WWII. There is one just like it in Hollister where there used to be always 7 Mustangs at once!
The crazy thing is they fought in the early months of World War II. The US had been phasing them out in favor of planes like the P-38 Lightning and P-40 Warhawk, but a few were still serving in the Philippines when the war broke out.
