Duxford Air Festival 27 May 2017

Some really nice weather for Duxford's season opener, including the debut of the Rafale in its new scheme - what an awesome jet and display that was! It was also nice to see the Sea Vixen again, but a great shame to hear about its landing at Yeovilon, so best of luck to the FNHT team in getting it airborne again.

A shot I've been trying to get for years, the Apache with a pyro background!
