    Spent the afternoon at a vintage auto auction west of the city so plenty of a.c. were about.
    The EAA B-17G inbound to Felts Field for a ride tour weekend, KC-135Rs C-130 (to far to see model) and UH-1N Twin Huey all inbound to Fairchild Air Force Base...civil aircraft included an old Sweringen Metrroliner, now used as a express package courier and several freighter Cessna 208 Caravans...while still in production the type is now getting "historic" in age.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    Spitfire parked (taxied and flew away but back later I am told) at Blackbush.

    Apparently this is the one that did Kate M's wedding. Would this have been flying over Worthing on Saturday (Spitfire also spotted over Worthing around 12:30pm).
    Is this a Bulldog?

    This afternoon at 1610 whilst delivering to Heliwork on Thruxton airfield a Western Air Piper PA-28-161 Warrior II G-CEJD taxied in only 50 metres away. I also saw a Bulldog parked up with the light blue fuselage band and it's rudder painted red, white and blue and a few metres away was a gloss black Gazelle.

    Lunchtime today chipmunk over Huntington village church, did several circles round. Was low enough to see wing markings which I think read WK549. Wish it had been me up there as it has been a lovely day for flying!

    Not particually historic but saw a C-130 doing static line para drops at weston on the Green while on the M40, then a Gazelle on the back of a lorry on the A34.
    Not as good as my freaky days last week on the A303 near Andover. On way down to customer AAC Lynx eastbound on a lorry, on the way back a RN Lynx westbound in almost the same place!

    Tiger Moth G-AKUE over South Croydon, joy riding out of Redhill I think. Quite common over here each summer but the first I've seen this year. A quite delightful sight and sound on a beautiful day like today.
