Duxford BoB - Saturday UPDATED for Sunday

Here are a few from the Saturday show. As others have said, the weather wasn't great and the lighting was worse!
The show opened with the RAF Falcons

...and their Canadian Do228

Although it was great to see six Hurricanes in the air together, their display was certainly no tail chase.

Good to see the BBMF Merlin fleet back in the air but why the one still in primer?

The rare DH-60G Moth Major

This warmed us up!

Is the star and bar in an authentic colour?

I'll get to my Sunday photos eventually!

C&C welcome.

I love the one with the jet and heat distortion.

I was right behind those three on the Sunday when they started, which was nice as it all of a sudden got very warm :)

Amazing to see twelve Spitfires in flight together, bearing in mind that when I first starting visiting Biggin Hill BoB airshows way back in the 60's I'd probably see only one, plus one Hurricane. Oh, I think that one of them is a Seafire?

I've finally finished going through Sunday's shots. The weather was better, but if anything the light much worse. Excuses over, and in no particular order:
