Just got back from seeing it display over Rye,wonderful sight even though I was too far for decent pics and the wind was something else ! Pics were taken from Rye Harbour

Best of a bad bunch of pics( too far away and poor conditions,that's my excuse anyway )lovely howl by the way :)

Ncis shots not to bad. I was at Wickenby where she did a mini display and yes the howl did set off all the car alarms.

I'm going to miss her this year. Still, if all goes well with the modification I'll see her next year!
