    Haven't been to an airshow for quite a few years. Love everything aviation though. I think that I'll have to take mlc junior some day.

    Hope you had a great day. What I'd give to fly in a vintage piston!!!!!

    When I was a Navy ATCO I used to have a room near to the Harrier Apron. Noise is something I have heard enougth of to last me a lifetime.

    (Enjoyed my fast jet flights though!!)

    I went down to East Fortune today too - the overcast weather made it difficult to get any decent photos, but (if I've managed to load them properly) here's a few for those of you who like 'planes....

    I haven't tried loading images here before, so bear with me if they are too big/small

    Ooops - they appeared a bit bigger than I intended.

    I went down on the motorbike and just rode around outside the show - means you can go to different viewpoints and park without any problems at the side of the road.

    I took loads of shots today (the advantage of digital) but only a few were usable, most had too much camera shake.
