I kept overhearing some one call the Rafale a ‘mirage’ :dizzy:

I'm sure Ben is a pleasantly humourous chap but did not know he was a full on comedian!

You do overhear some classic things from people at Duxford (and indeed anywhere). When I hear a spit called a hurricane etc etc I do try to refrain from taking the mick in my head.
Reason being, there are plenty of things I am no expert about other than aviation, and I would not like others to laugh at me, so although you do hear gems on the flightline walk, I try to keep away from judging !! :smile:

I must admit though' I do get a warm glow if anyone asks me what something is they weren't sure about... :smile:

Were Duxford expecting the world's press to turn up??? The size of the press enclosure at the M11 end was ridiculous! I think on the Sunday there was a maximum 4-5 people in it crazy.
