At Last... 558 came to woodford

Postby Ray C » Sun Sep 09, 2012 5:16 pm

WOW its been a long year but what a setting for her to finally make it to Woodford,
she arrived just after 4 pm low over alderley edge hill, with two flyovers and a little
wing dip over the runway,
sorry the picture is not the best, :o) :ymapplause:

Ray C,
I'm made up for you mate. We lucky few who work on and around her forget sometimes how lucky we are to see her all the time and how much she means to those who so generously support her. Glad you got to see her at last and flying over God's county too. :ymapplause: :D

If anyone's interested she came to Elvington after Woodford. Some pics in my Victor XL231 thread if you're interested...
