North Weald's Facebook page said that the Gnats were busy this weekend, and with the weather this good, a visit seemed like a fun idea.

Ended the day riding around with TJJ in 'Ops 1', staking out a spot at the top end of the runway far from the public areas of the airfield waiting for some Jet Provosts to come in from Coventry.

Big thank you to Trevor for these shots. :smile:

The charity shop in Harlow came up trumps with a couple of book bargains too, including one from UKAR's own Lindsay 'MadDan' Peacock. :up:
