I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

Bournemouth Airshow is allegedly due the BBMF Lanc, Spit and Hurricanse between 3 and 4pm, but the map doesn't suggest this particular flight is going anywhere near us.  I guess this one is using other aircraft?

Government.  If you think the problems they create are bad, you should see their solutions.

According to BBMF download schedule the Lanc & 1spit & 1 hurricane went to Bournemounth on Thursday & were staying down there.

There was supposed to be 1 spit & 1 hurricane leaving Coningsby this morning to do the BoB tour, but it appears they went down to North Weald yesterday and stayed overnight, I assume because we had poor weather this morning they prepositioned elsewhere.

However with all things aviation things can & do change.

If it happened, they didn't show it.  Sat here watching patiently.  Oh well...

They didn't turn up at West Hampnet or Tangmere.

Weather was low cloud and drizzle.
