Re: Last Duxford flying day 2021 * update*

Great set Ian. As Stagger has said, little evidence of the very iffy light which a lot of mine suffered from!

Duxford Flying Day 9 October

A good day out in what became very good weather, although the light (when it finally showed up) seemed even trickier than usual. Excuses over! A few of mine that I'm fairly happy with in the order taken. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51573806529_1110ab18e4_o.jpg P-47D Thunderbolt "Nellie&...
