Catching the Dragon!

Hi all

With all the US talk of budget cuts I thought it was best time to get my backside in gear and get up to Fairford for the U2 swopovers.
Back on June the 2nd the weather wasn't at its best so I took some photos from the Northern crash gate, Yesterday it was much better :smile:
