Heard the throaty roar, knew what it was, and only caught a Spit and Hurricane, I'm getting old I reckon. I'm sitting in the back garden on 14th if its to be a repeat.

Thanks Nutty,

Some interesting stuff in there. Enjoy it M8 (as they say). I wish I were free to partake in the day. Thanks again for the info.

I do like how the BBMF website appear to have adopted the nose art names for the Lanc and others and tell their story.

2 Lancs and 3 Spitfires in formation over Goodwood for the Revival Weekend. Earlier today there were 2 Hurricanes, 3 Spitfires and an ME109 flying in formation. Wonderful sounds!

Not quite as loud as the BRM V16 though!

However many people tried to get into Duxford today and were disappointed - other than me that is! In the P&R at about 1000, 25 mins into queue for P&R ticket machine when told gates were closed. After some thought and an abortive try for one possivle vantage point, ended up on the verge by a roundabout at Sawston. Great head-on view when they arrived, and some good crossing shots. Afternoon enhanced by being parked next to a car in which a guy had brought his 92+ year old mother, who had been a WAAF at Scampton on the night of the dams raid. Had an interesting take on the death of the dog we cannot name. Promised to e-mail them some pics. Glad I went - and in future I shall be less critical of those watching airshows from the roadside. Thanks BBMF and the Canadian warplane Heritage

Nice pictures, Nutloose, as is normal. I wonder if the Committee Against Aviation would have any qualms about Jane flying with that H2S blister?
