Pic of the year :))
a brilliant day at Sywell, possibly the best display of the season , very low, very noisy, graceful and powerful at the same time, and before that a lovely slow flypast with the Spitfire and Blades, with 558 practically standing up to reduce her speed to that of the others, in brilliant sunshine.
The meerkat wasnt the only one to stare in wonder. It was simply sensational :D

I completely agree, this was the best display I have seen this season. Being a smaller airfield meant it was flying a much tighter circuit..
