WAC @ Silverstone.Updated with a few pics from Saturday.

Post by coopers »

Popped up to Silverstone for a few hours this afternoon to take a look at the World Aerobatic Championships (WAC)
It was blowing an absolute gale so I was suprised to see any flying at all.
Will be going again on Saturday for the finals and airshow... :vulcan:
A few pics..

Good stuff Clive!

You didn't happen to get any shots of N444TM around 1115(ish) did you? Think we were the last morning flight for that aircraft as the wx closed in. :smile:
