Trip to see the Vampire flying ended up a little bit frustrating - the two planned flights ended up being one, engine starting just as the sunlight dipped behind the hangars, casting almost the entire taxiway in shadow. Hangar 11's activities enjoyed much better lighting, although waiting in position for the Vampire meant the Spitfire's return in glorious golden light was missed. Air Ambulance also had a busy day.

Nice stuff, as per. Saw that they were having a flight today and was wondering if you managed to catch it!

Colours on the MD902 are spot-on. :up:

Never really been the biggest fan of the PR version of the Spitfire, that first picture captures it well. :clap:

Nice markings, but I prefer the shape of the JP5 personally.

Was back there at the end of March but just the same handful of aircraft operating that day. Needing a few more things to emerge from the hangars now.

Great Photos have a soft spot for 507 looking forward to seeing her and Mark again at the end of April at Halfpenny Green with PROV scheduled to make an appearance also.
