Nice shots Dan :clap:

The scheme is growing on me (I think!). Any idea of the significance of the Chinese flag on the side?

Sorry, no idea.

Good day at the airfield today for the Clacton airshow moves - Vampires out of reach again on the cross runway, and the MiG was due out but hadn't gone by 1700 and couldn't hang around any longer, plus it was raining by then anyway.

I assumed it was going to be BBMF in for fuel when the tower mentioned an inbound Hurricane on the radio. Nice surprise to see PT arrive in a Hurri again. The Strikemaster I didn't really get anything I was happy with - kept missing it as stuff was happening at Hangar 11. Thanks again to PT and his engineers for the warm welcome and refreshments, and also Stu for his company throughout the day.

Not my best day with the camera though - too busy talking to people to concentrate on what I was doing and the changeable light caught me out a few times with exposure compensation dialled in when I didn't need any.
