Once, this would have been a regular journey as aircraft were ferried from the USA to the UK, but these days it qualifies as a rare, epic flight, ending at Duxford on July 4th, in time to allow its new owner, Dan Friedkin, to display at the show alongside Steve Hinton and Ed Shipley as part of the Horsemen Flight Team.
Well, that was the plan and Lee did his bit. Unfortunately on Saturday, the first day of Flying Legends, Berlin Express lost its 'Malcolm hood' canopy during Nick Grey's thunderously fast and very low pass over the hard runway.
Some reports say the canopy disintegrated and fell; others than it fell and disintegrated on impact with the ground. Either way it is evident that part of the canopy came into contact with the empennage , causing visible damage to the vertical stabiliser , preventing further flight over the Flying Legends weekend and also a planned appearance at the following week's RIAT.
Without Berlin Express the much-anticipated return to Legends of The Horsemen Flight Team, the world's only P Mustang formation aerobatic team, was delayed for a day.
Those who were at the show on Sunday witnessed a majestic close formation display, worthy of the reputation the team brought with them.
On Saturday the gap in the programme left by their absence was filled by an extra solo display by Pete Kynsey in the Grumman Bearcat F8F: a fine display in its own right but inevitably a disappointment, especially for those unable to come back on Sunday to see The Horsemen.
As with several of the displays, there were two displays in one: the Corsair performing solo aerobatics, alternating at stage centre with the Bearcat and Fury flying repeated formation passes including a feast of topsides.
Just as was memorable for the inclusion of the F, so will be remembered as the year the Red Arrows made their Legends debut.
Before the show, the discussion was around whether it was an appropriate display for a Flying Legends airshow, whose reputation rests on the variety and quantity of piston-engined aircraft.
The retrospective discussion will be less about the appropriateness and more about the display itself. The display itself was a 'pre-show' to the main traditional part of Sunday's Legends.
Just before it got underway, Red 10 announced that the display would be offset from the standard B axis to avoid aerobatics over a residential area.
The revised oblique line detracts hugely from the impact of the display, especially for those at the eastern end of the airfield for whom most of the manoeuvres appeared very distant.
A further distraction was introduced when a stray para-glider caused a halt for several minutes. There was a further interruption to the flow of the show later in the afternoon, when three Squirrel helicopters arrived to bring members of the team for ground-based PR activities.
The norm at Flying Legends, and the other shows at IWM Duxford, is for aircraft to be taxiing, taking off, displaying all at the same time in a meticulously planned entwinement of aircraft activity.
That is one of the strengths of shows at Duxford. But when the Red Arrows come - for a display or for a visit - there is a prolonged pause in other activity to satisfy their requirement for clear airspace.
Overall, bearing in mind the restrictions that prevent the best display, and the pauses that are uncharacteristic of Duxford shows, some may be forced to wonder if displays by the Red Arrows add anything to such a show as Flying Legends.
This is not to criticise the team, whose skills are beyond question. Rather it was the way in which their involvement caused stops and starts in an otherwise flowing airshow.
Perhaps they drew additional visitors but surely the vast majority came for the variety and quantity of legendary aircraft that no other show displays as well as Flying Legends.
But two highlights that are Flying Legends regulars are the Balbo and the opening Spitfire formation. The opening formation this year comprised nine Spitfires.
They began in a single formation before breaking into two groups, six of them demonstrating a tailchase whilst the remaining three: SM; the Grace Spitfire ML and Boultbee's RR made a series of low, close passes.
Regular it may be, but the Balbo is no less spectacular for that. Just as exciting as the superbly assembled and choreographed mass flypasts is the gathering and take-off from the airfield of such a number and variety of warbirds, each taking their position on the grass or hard runway and each lifting into the sky solo, in pairs or trios.
Surely at no other airshow is there such a merger of aural harmony and visual delight. The Balbo this year comprised 19 aircraft, led by Pete Kynsey in the Bearcat.
Following the spectacle of the massed take-off, it inevitably takes a while for the aircraft to move into formation.
Rather than leave a gap, centre stage is taken by the 'Joker'. The Joker has nothing to do with the character of the same name in the Batman films.
The origin is the jester, employed since ancient times to entertain, notably in the royal courts on several continents, especially in a gap before a feast or the delivery of news.
At Flying Legends, the Joker fills the interludes whilst the Balbo forms up and between the first pass and its return.
Apart from the carefully choreographed balbo split and breaks for landing, that should have been the end of the show.
On Sunday, however, there was an unwelcome extra act when Mustang 'Miss Velma' suffered an engine problem, causing pilot Mark Levy to make an unplanned landing in a wheat field on the other side of the M There was some anxiety following the standard advice that car parks would remain closed for the time being to allow emergency services unhindered access to the surrounding roads, but thankfully news soon broke that the Mustang was upright and the pilot out of the aircraft: which was successfully recovered to the IWM Duxford site the following day.
Huge credit is due to the team for dealing with the incident so quickly and for keeping the crowds informed. Flying Legends promised much and delivered on most of its promises.
It would be unfortunate if it were remembered for a few mishaps. Yes, people will recall that this is where Miss Velma was damaged and yes, it will long be lamented that after an arduous but successful transit from the USA, Berlin Express did not get to complete any of its planned public displays.
But the successes were more numerous than the mishaps. The rare sighting of Mustangs from the USA; the display of the Horsemen; the debut of Hurricane P and especially, very especially, the formation of five Hurricanes and three Mk 1 Spitfires surrounding the Bristol Blenheim.
This may have been the silver anniversary of Flying Legends, but the content was golden. As Monty Python didn't say, 'no-one expects the jet evolution' at Flying Legends, but a legend it is, so the F made a rare non-piston appearance at the show.
Otherwise it was business as usual, with around 50 vintage types gracing the skies over Duxford for the 23rd incarnation of one of the most popular warbird air shows in the world.
Ahead of Flying Legends in , much of the talk was around the new CAA regulations; the display line; the crowd line; the closure of the 'tank bank' and absence of tickets on the gate.
Anyone who feared a negative impact should have been very pleasantly surprised. Advance ticketing certainly eased entry. And the TFC managed to find a location.
The edition of Flying Legends will be held at Sywell on 10 and 11 July! The airfield has three grass runways, 03RL, , and and a parallel 1,m hard runway 03LR.
These generally offer better photo opportunities than Duxford where one is facing the sun most of the day. But up till now no choice for an airshow layout has been made.
On the map courtesy of thisisflight , the pale blue line shows a choice for maximum space for the spectators, but this restricts the use of runways to both s.
