So it was you. That puts a name to the photo I took. I am in the photo on the left hand side, first person standing up. Sorry for not speaking. That was my first ever time at Coningsby.

Actually I'm quite pleased with mine I thought they would be really soft and fuzzy because of the haze but not so!

Have only glanced through my pics so far - the Lanc, Dak, Hurricane, Spits were up also Typhoons + 4 from Leuchars + 2 QRA and Tornados.
