Sorry Jiggy - I hadn't seen these. Thanks for posting them - good to see them back to 9. Did the Reds display at the barracks?

I see they have gone to Greece then on the Cyprus today.

Thanks Pam. It was great to see all 9 again.
We parked in a layby. They displayed pretty much over the grass strips and barracks I think.

As were Hurricane LF363 and Spitfire TE311 :ymapplause: :ymapplause: Doing syncro displays. So cool :D I've always liked clipped winged spitfires.

And can I just say how much I love the red/white metal fencing at Coningsby 07 end, the gaps mean I can actually see the runway \:D/ :ymapplause: unlike the old wooden fence which was too high for me :)) =))

Haha!!!

No wing waggle but twice in the few days, they all looked absolutely beautiful. We're just lucky that our house is the south west corner of the village so 'I'm sure it's an aiming point \:D/

(Not rubbing it in but) Here's the BBMF doing a wonderful pass over the bomb stores at RAF Woodhall Spa.

We could hear the Lanc but we couldn't find her, and we were starting to think we were hearing things =)) =))

Also watched the Spit and Hurri doing their syncro display from the old prei track.
