An interesting, for ma anyway set of days at Scone this week. Here's a selection of the photos.

Bioflight arrived for some maintenance in the form of this P68, seen here starting for an engine check... and yes the apron really does slope.

Visiting RV9 from the Carlisle area, which arrived just as I was getting ready to do some circuit bashing.

I struck it lucky with the other Bioflight aircraft, the Observer was out by the pumps. I have some inside photos to publish later.
