On Thursday, June 6th, MJ444 took to the skies for her first post-restoration flight at Duxford, coinciding with the 80th anniversary of D-Day. The flight went smoothly, and testing is ongoing as of now. All signs indicate that MJ444 is an outstanding aircraft, with the Merlin 500 engine providing exceptional performance—earning it the nickname ‘rocket ship’!

It’s done—MJ444 is back in the sky where she belongs. It’s fitting that whenever we see her flying, we take a moment to remember the brave young Canadians who once piloted her. They fought—and in two cases, died—for freedom, far from their homeland, and they should never be forgotten.
