Completed Mission
Lead Squadron flying spare; joined formation. The Brodie crew may have been originally assigned to fly 42‑97309, and was forced to switch aircraft for unknown reasons. Apparently they were told to go to Ground Spare Aircraft 43‑37971, but that had already been assigned to Johnstone. Again for unknown reasons, the Chadwick Crew was told to move to lead Ground Spare Aircraft 43‑37971, and turn over 42‑97521 to the Brodie Crew.
