This was my best [only] shot & I had to asked someone if they would let me in to take it & as you can see the spot light was on the wrong side to where we got stuck

and this was a typical shot when she came back in

By the way the fireworks were the best I have ever seen

Oooo love the fireworks :ymapplause:

You should have stood with us on the ther side, more room for the crowd to spred out, but saying that, we were stood by the rope for a good half an hour before the taxi run =))

My pics are on TVOC forum if anyone is interested.

And when I've finished editing it there'll be a video as well.

I did intend to be the otherside Helen but we got talking & the first we knew was when they announced they had roped off the area so we couldn't get round :(

Approx £1.6 million if I remember correctly to return her to flying condition, normally mentioned in line with the name Peter Jackson!

Well, I guess that means we all have to pay to see
his upcoming epic multiple times, buy the DVD
for ourselves and as gifts plus any other merchandise
connected to "The Movie" we may happen to run
across.

What do you think? Can he afford to foot the bill?

And if we all do all of the above, WILL he?

Given the chance to change my allegiance from a large badly run Delta shaped operation to getting that Lanc in the air, I would be very keen to support the Paxton brothers
