Very pretty  ;)

A few Spits and a Spanish Me109 buzzing HMS Daedalus and surrounding area, been on going for about 2-3 days now. Filming for new 'blockbuster' about Dunkirk apparently....the following link is a live webcam at Daedalus.

That would be the two wokkas that were visiting here on Thursday night.

Some of the crew popped into the hangar to say hello and be inspired by their old jet.  ;)
I'll never give up on the dream!

Whilst visiting friends in Moreton In The Marsh yesterday, heard something powereful, and lo and behold, a Rockwell B1, I haven't seen one for over five years, well chuffed. I understand they're in at Fairford at the moment.
