    Yeah, I read this elsewhere. I would like to see great harm to befall the thieves.

    It does appear to be a pre planned theft as most People are visitors to the Museum and I find it hard to believe it was a spur of the moment theft.

    It is a Long time since I last visited Duxford and I just wonder if they have security cameras, especially at entrance and exit Points?

    Lets just hope that the owner gets it back intact.

    I saw this reported last night whilst up visiting my Dad. It was on Anglia news.

    I do wonder where such things go post-theft.
    Jeeps have become expensive items, so obviously the scumbags circle, but you'd also think due to relative rarity they were also quite identifiable. Smacks of someone shady from the legitimate trade to me, to have the systems to spirit such a thing away.

    Anyway. Speculating. I hate thieves.

    Having had a little google over the past 24 hours I count at least five thefts of WW2 Jeeps (1 was a WW2 Jeep replica) from homes or shows (the Duxford one is the second from a show) since July 2013.

    Aye, 2 within a few days of each other recently, which is sort of what makes me wonder at the stolen market.

    The police use of social media in this instance was very slow (three days) when they should've been pushing this story Sunday evening. Also Duxford is slightly culpable, they laughably stated their CCTV was "being upgraded" which left them with no recording function.

    Any sort of reenactment event/military show people need to be switched on to this now.
