    Battle of Britain air show at Duxford last year. There were so many people there it took me more than two hours to get near the place and then we parked on the grass verge and walked the last bit. Many,many people arrived later and were parked a good walk away.
    I'm a regular for air shows at Duxford and I've never seen such a large crowd. Who says we don't remember?

    It's a very emotive sound for the Brits who obviously comprised most of the audience. I've said this before but non British people rarely grasp just what this little airplane means to us. There would have been a few moist eyes and lumpy throats.
    It was also bl**dy loud!
    Cheers
