Alconbury, 91/92

Postby Tuckat on Sat 03 Mar 2018, 4:10 pm

Just a dozen from Alconbury air shows in 91 or 92, Negatives and prints have got a bit mixed up over the years, but I managed to make the last 2 shows there. I've got more, which I will get scanned eventually. I hope they are of some interest, thanks for looking.

Oops! Its been subsequently pointed out there may be 3 interlopers from Upper Heyford in there...

I must check that, my memory isn't as good as it could be these days. Thanks, Mark.

Like the KC-135. In those days they could get away with images like that, although if I remember correctly in this case the painting of her face left something to be desired! :shock:

Yeh, schoolboy error, but in defence I did say there were three interlopers in my pre photo waffle :smile:
