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.

Not a type we see too much of up here, so only have a few shots from Duxford visits and the F-15/P-51 duo at RIAT 2006. Do have a few of 'Old Crow'....does she count?

Susy became Darlin Ann and was then sold to a German owner in 2007.

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.
