BBMF Lancaster,Spitfire and Hurricane plus Auto Gyro,Fenec (I think),Beaufighter,Bronco another solo Spifire and other unidentified prop jobs ! Oh and of course "Just Jane",all seen at East Kirkby on Saturday when Jax and I dipped our toes into the "Peoples Mosquito" trade stand as newby volunteers.Had an interesting chat with their Operations Manager (Bill Ramsey) about his time flying 558 and other "interesting" information. Taff Stone (and friend) turned up and gave some insight into the current 558 saga :)

Well done for your Volunteering; did you have that much time available to discuss the "saga"?
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

Bill was there all day so it was quite easy to chat with him between customers and during the flying display was on which of course thinned out the visitors to the "Mosquito" stand.

Couple of late ones from the last week.

On my way back from Cambridge (Tuesday I think) a Puma heading in the general direction of Odiham.

On my way back from Reading this Monday 5 Challenger tanks on the A303 heading towards Salisbury.

On my way off to Wales (Tuesday) a Chinook over Southampton heading towards Poole.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Standing outside in the pump courtyard at my place of work Gilbarco and BBMF Spitfire PRXIX PS915 flew over at a nice height. Presume just displayed at Clacton and heading to Southend? What a lovely noise she made.

A lucky spot, nice one.
