YES !!!! Managed to convince my better half that waiting a little bit at work would gain her major credit's from me if i could have the car and drag....errrr i mean take my four daughters to see a bit of history fly over it's birthplace.
Managed to park up by the golf course lay by and got a great view.Kids loved it and i am glad to see her over Woodford again.
Here's my effort taken only on a compact Nikon with her flying over XM603
