How utterly brilliant are those Tiger Moth / Stampe shots.......? Superb views that have just made me jealous.
I've been lucky and flown in a Stampe, but in 'normal' weather, with 'normal' scenery below..... those shots show just what flying is all about.... :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Much as parachuting appeals to me, and is something I've yet to acheive, count me out in weather like we're having - those lot must be nuts..... :grin:

Thanks for sharing these stunning shots with us

Richard, what a truly lovely set of photos. Reminds me what flying is all about!! Have not flown since the end of September as weather been consistantly rotten whenever I have been booked and have now got a fractured foot and on crutches. Have not been to Headcorn for a while, had planned a couple of trips but again the weather did its worst and either poured with rain or was really windy. Hoping to get down there again soon though.

Hope you are well and hopefully will see you at Headcorn again soon.

All the best
Have a very Happy Christmas
Nikki
