Hi all,

Some photos of vintage aircraft around the country over the past few months that I haven't yet got around to posting..

The first is Vampire T11 WZ507 at Halfpenny Green over the weekend of 29/30 April, for the Radials and Trainers fly-in:

Nice set. It's sad for me to see so many former North Weald residents moving away.

Yep that Iindian Dak is a great capture, the only pic of it I've seen bar one in the magazines, the original statement mentioned the intention of it attending British airshows this season, well it sort of did for you!

Still for sale as far as I am aware. In fact, one of the last former CAF aircraft for sale.
