My 2013 in images

Post by Seamus »

Evening all,

Time for my annual post here! Thought I'd share a selection of images from what has been a busy and enjoyable year. My first outing was a grey day at Old Warden for the April Flying Day

Conditions were much better for a superb Spring airshow at Duxford.

My only event of June was a trip to Cosford. Another fine varied show, in even better weather.

A frantic July kicked off with two days at Waddington, taking in Friday arrivals and Saturdays excellent airshow.

My final visit of the year to Duxford was for the September show. A couple of soakings didn't detract from a decent show

Rounding off my year was a trip to the local for the Cobham Hall open day, with a cheeky spot of time at the fence thrown in for good measure.

Thanks for looking. My apologies for the amount of pics, but it's rather difficult to condense such a fruitful year into a small amount of images. Hopefully, they were no less enjoyable

Cheers,

Shaun
