What a CRACKING day, good company, good food and great flying ONLY spoilt by some lousy weather. Joined by Paul, Helen and Alex, we braved the worst of the weather and waited for the BBMF to do their stuff. Here are a few of the photo’s from a day that wasn’t blessed with much good light.

Very appropriate visitors given the prevailing weather.

At the very end of our day when the majority of people had left, these three turned up for a quick fly through.

The 1st Typhoon shot is super sharp!
