Well the displays were wonderfully crisp so I should hope so! ;)

Fantastic day out. Two hours of displays and fly-pasts by the BBMF, you wouldn't get that if you paid for an airshow! :)

Thank you Gentlemen


Just one point, if I was taking photo's from a similar location at a well known Cambridgeshire Warbird Airfield I would have been berated for being in the NAUGHTY FIELD! :-o

Funny old game isn't it! ;)
