It's Duxford, & then back up north like a blue arse fly for the potential Woodford flyover Sunday.

I WILL SEE 558 . My wife thinks I'm up to no good.......! :D :D

Had a report that she passed near Spalding, and I heard something heavy go over my house at about 18:00, but she would have passed 10 miles away from me from the route I had looked at (same route as for the Clacton show earlier), so didn't look out for her. Won't know whether it was or not :( :( :(.

EDIT: 2 other people saw her over Spalding :( :( :(.
