    I have been waiting so long to see this aircraft Bruce. After searching every so many months, only to find photoshopped pictures, it’s finally here. Hopefully it won’t be long until we see this beautiful aircraft landing at my dear Manchester

    All the best

    I’ve just seen a video of N185AN and it was worth the wait. Such a great moment to see a historic AA aircraft finally in the carrier’s new colours.
