An interesting comment about “booking fees will not apply”. I wonder who that was aimed at! :-)
Tickets are now booked through See Tickets, and not the museum, and they usually charge booking fees. Nothing sinister.

"traffic wiring"? Hard as I try, can't think what was predicted there.... You know the new electric cars?

Spitfire Mark I was supposed to do a poppy drop at 11.00. It did 3 slow passes, but no poppy drop, but I didn't hear why. On the first pass the Poppy Drop was hand delivered and on the second pass, delivery was when the flaps were lowered. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51230377005_92fcfa0160_...

Bimbling Around London In a Heatwave.

Taking advantage of the Bank Holiday Monday sunshine (24.8C recorded at Northolt) I headed down to London and as it was going to be a tad warm I decided to travel light, as in carrying kit, so I dug out my shirt pocket friendly Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 M6 point and shoot.

2000 visitors but what matters is the members who booked and didn't turn up because they took a place up which could have been filled either by another member or a paying customer.
But how would you go about cancelling a ticket, to free up a place, if you can't go?.

Re: Duxford Airshows 2021

They should have delayed the flying til 2.30pm, when there was blue sky and sunshine, and it wouldn't have been a night shoot with all the dark black storm clouds overhead. Plus point, it didn't rain.
