Vampire Air to Air

Hi all,

Some photos from a sortie with VPG's DH Vampire T.11 WZ507 over the skies of Northamptonshire. The weather was mostly sunny with some scattered cloud, which made for a good mix of photo oppurtunities.

Thanks everyone! I'm pleased with how they came out for a first proper air-to-air.

Lovely...but an opportunity missed was to fly in formation with the Meteor (in identical colours) before it's last flight...How cool would that have been.

It was discussed, but in the end decided that it would be impractical given the Meteor's higher handling speeds.
