Very nice, and something a bit different!
Since my trip to Canada last year, and a flight in one of their Beavers, I've had a soft spot for Harbour Air. What was one of their Otters doing so far away from home (Vancouver)?

Cracking stuff Kev! Must admit I was a tad worried for LBS again when I read a report on MSF that it'd been raining during Saturday morning! :smile:

Thanks for the comments chaps! :smile:

Will post some more later!

Karl, you were right to be worried about Saturday! The weather was rubbish, cold and wet! :mad: Sunday's forecast wasnt much better with the prospect of thunderstorms so I thought the 2008 airshow season weather had struck again and was going to ruin yet another show! :sad: Fortunately Sunday was clear blue from 10am :biggrin:

Kev :rock:

What a difference a day makes!! :ghost:

Two pics from Saturday,

Brilliant set of the Canadair :clap:

Looks like it was thrown around in similar bravado the French one I've seen display.

Can I make it clear that I am not the 2008 weather jinx! I am not. It isn't me. It's someone else. No way is it me. I have nothing to do with it.

Hope that's clear.

You great big wuss, it wasn't that bad - was nice and warm in the water. It's Kev with his camera that's the jinx - hence the good weather at Dawlish.

Great pics, will see shortly if any of mine make the grade :whistle:
