Sunday Roast at Biggin

Post by Seamus »

Spent a sweltering day at Biggin Hill yesterday for my first air fair in 10 years. Thought the show was fantastic, with a full and varied line up- especially good to see such a full participation from the RAF once more, especially the Harrier, which is a display I've missed over the last few years. Shooting got trickier as the day went on and the sun moved in front, and I struggled badly during the BoB sequence, which was a superb set piece. Not sure I've seen so many Spitfires and Hurricanes at the same show away from Duxford.
