Seeing Dan's pic of Princess Elizabeth and that take off brings back a few interesting memories, espically if you were on the bank by the Land Warfare hall at Duxford on that day...

A few of mine, Janie at Elmsett to start. I've got agree this is the best looking of the current crop.

A few from Rougham.

Just a couple of weeks ago at Bentwaters. Janie and the new Marinell.

Lovely images of all the Mustangs (past & present) - shows how much JJ has changed following her 'de-blinging' two years ago!

That will do just fine, thanks.

Pretty amazing really, since when I first started going to airshows back in the stone age, ie the '60's, there were none.

Some great shots here, i'll add a few of my own in a bit.

What's the story behind Princess Elizabeth then?
