    Bank Holiday weekend; Airbase and Brunty

    I thought it was about time Ali and I headed south to see our friends at Coventry again, so we decided to make a weekend on it with a trip to Coventry on Saturday and Bruntingthorpe on Sunday.
    The day started brightly

    But soon threatening clouds rolled in



    I finally got to see the Meteor T7 in the metal!

    Ali's shot of one of the Daks from the Shack's nose turret

    We also had a surprise visitor pop in to drop crew off to take the Anson to Abingdon

    Props together

    Time for a couple more shots in the hangar before the Anson and Dak depart

    And finally, what I really went to see!

    Sunday saw excellent weather for CWJ at Brunty. We were lucky enough to be able to accompany the TBAG guys and get involved in their preparations to run. Some for the Bucc fans





    Down the runway

    The Beech 18 coming in to land

    The Victor opened proceedings with her first run of the day

    The Buccs headed down the field, and so did we. A different view of their display

    And some shameless shots of 544 taxying in

    Then we were back down to where the action was to greet the new arrivals
    The undead Jaguar (FC members will understand this!)



    And SHAR

    Nice display by the Canberra after a smoky start





    The Victor did a second run too



    Victor under power on a runway. A sight which has not been seen at Elvington for far too long...
    Lightning was a star performer as ever





    And 900 made another run too

    Last 2 for me, Ollie (Victor Sim) Tries to out-smoke the Canberra with a Hunter T.7 before taking it for a little walk



    There was much more, such as the Nimrod, Comet, Iskra, plus the BBMF Spit XIX visit, but these are my highlights. It was nice to catch up with a few familiar faces too, and to finally get round to seeing the good work going on in the Beech hangar (from whom I bought a quality Phantom patch!)

    Love the views from the far end without the crowd in, glad you had a great weekend.
    Push enough pixels around and it'll look like an aeroplane profile.

    Nice shots.
    Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.
