Careful Gaz, JCs are very addictive ! Just ask the 558 engineers :D

any report on your day at Coningsby ? From what Minty wrote, a mixed bag weatherwise ?

I spent most of the day in the car sulking because my camera wouldn't work :(( :((

Great to hear the BBMF passed their PDA \:D/ :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
The sun shone on them :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Thank you to Paul for taking me :) :-*

Indeed! He is a very pretty boy :D


ANYWAY

Lots of flying, the 4 ship typhoon flypast was nice. I've got photos, but, grey aircraft against a grey sky = not good photos

Thats a shame, 7 miles away here it was a beautiful day we didn't have any rain and only 1 short period of cloud.

There were quite a few Typhoons that came over

Cloud seemed to linger until well after lunch, then it hammered it down, then the sun came out

That's a shame Gaz. I wonder if Clunes managed to get some decent shots ? Somehow I suspect that he did ;)

Im sorry but Cluny can't come to the computer right now as he still is a drooling , dribbling mess after PA474 landed on him this afternoon =P~

Thanks all that came and battled with the elements with me , thanks Helen for the sausage + chips , the new flask and the cupcakes :)
Highlight for me [other than the previously mentioned close encounter with the Lanc] has to be the surprise flypast of the Sentry and 2 x Typhoons as we were leaving B-)

My attempt at photographing the aircraft will be posted on here, after they have uploaded to Flickr. There are one or two good ones :). Like I said, apologies to all for having to leave early :(.

Great vid Cluny, a very enjoable hour indeed, so many Tiffies enjoying themselves, and great footage of the BBMF ! :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

edited to ask, have you quite recovered from being almost squashed up by such an illustrious aircraft ? :))

Great day. Plenty of Typhoon and Tornado activity, about two hours of displays and fly-pasts by the BBMF, sociable company, sausage + chips delivered by Cluny and paid for by XPL, and Helen shared out her very nice cupcakes!!! Even a passenger flight for added variety just before I had to leave...

Alex, JM :)

@ XPL: more than makes up for Brize!!! =))

Nice one Helen, not sure how you manage to work several cameras at the same time! :-o


Thank you for the cupcake pudding! :ymapplause:
