Hi all,

Went up again with Action stations over Dover, this time alongside David Harvey in the HAC Hurricane. Here are a few shots. More to come:

Excellent photos, are they the company that allow to fly with the Mk. 5 Spitfire?

Hi Rob.

Very nice shots, we don't see many of the Hurricane. I was on the Memorial site Thursday and Friday for a meeting and hosting a visit, and we were a little worried about the weather, but you seem to have been lucky. Did you get any pictures of the Hurricane over the Memorial. You will not believe it, but on Thursday we actually got someone complain about the Spitfire flying round.

Great pictures of the Hurricane. I flew with Action Stations on Thursday morning with the Spitfire BM597. Still smiling three days later for what was a great photo opportunity. Still wotking my way through my pictures.
