A VERY wet day at Duxford yesterday. Such a shame as there was a lot going on. After 3 hours in the rain, we gave up and came home, but the airshow continued for another 2 and a half hours! Well done to everyone who stayed on and the pilots for flying in the rain! As you can see from the photos, very grey skies.
Here are some photos from the BBMF displays over the 3 days of the Royal International Tattoo 2018 (RIAT 2018). The Trenchard and the Trenchard+ displays are probably the best display that the BBMF have ever put on! They really do bring a lump to the throat when they all fly past in formation.
With the evening coming up fast and the cold, wet and windy weather we have had today, the local bird population are desperately trying to top up their energy levels to last the night, especially as many of them have young to feed as well. There is regularly a half a dozen birds either feeding or waiting to get on the feeder this evening.
Some more photos from last week’s photoshoot. This is the Spitfire Mk24. Unfortunately we were only allowed to look into the cockpit and not sit it it. Amazingly this Spitfire was in service from 1947 to 1983 where it flew with the Hong Kong Auxiliary Air Force.
