Was lucky enough to have the time to go to RAF Marham, as I was in Norfolk anyway - much looking at Google earth to try and guess where I needed to stand with the cameras, and chose a spot on a slope about a quarter of a mile west of the end of runway 06, not far from the Swaffham road. Turned out to be a lucky guess as the trio approached over my right shoulder. Only 2 other people stood with me, one ex-RAF, the other used to farm the land I was stood on before he retired. Some pics need a bit of work as the planes, on turning to fly along the runway, were then between me and the sun, which quite rightly shone through the clouds as the planes approached.

Recently watched on BBC what could have been a very good documentary, had it been in 3 x 1 hour segments, about Captain Brown RN, if only the BBC had done some research into the subject. What was on was too short for all that this man has done. Sadly not on i-player, maybe they will repeat it again sometime soon.

Good that Planes TV streamed live footage from Weston, so all those who couldn't be there could watch an impressive display, even though some of the planned participants couldn't make it or were running a wee bit late.

Hamlet. Leaves potential customers with the dilemma 'To buy or not to buy, that is the question' (Apologies to the Bard)

Looking forward to Dunsfold, Shoreham and Prestwick as the shows I'm definitely attending, but may have to find more time off to visit others as, presumably, the Lancs are dependant on weather conditions

No further problems with logging in now. Looking forward to this summer's airshow and the resultant posts, not just about XH558 but all aviation stuff of interest.

Was a previous member of this, as Andy 5880, from October 2010 to October 2012, but then had significant difficulty logging in, for reasons unknown, so have re-registered
