Quite a strong set, perhaps a little too much contrast but that is no way meant as a criticism!

There are no excuses for exploiting a work of art (an air display which has a massive budget and would not occur if it was not for those who paid to enter the gate - fact).
Lets drop all this naughty field stuff.

Which was a fraction of the number of people camped outside Fairford during the show, or the thousands who used to sit in the park/green and watch outside at Biggin Hill.
