Well it was a bit of shall we, shan't we decision. A very last minute decision to go with Wayne, I think we decided at something like 1am to go down. We got there fairly early and we were greeted by blue skies and a few scattered clouds, which as usual wasn't forecasted!

The light in the morning was superb, right up until the displays started that was. Nevertheless it was a great day and I'm glad we went, some very nice displays and at least it didn't rain! Thanks to Fletch, Mic & Wayne for the company and also a big thanks to Wayne for driving.


1. Caught the RN Lynx's arriving in the sun :yahoo:

Photography in the truest sense, rather than a substitute for a notebook and pen. :clap:


Terrific set Lloyd. Excellent composition and colours.
