    I'm still recovering from a fantastic weekend at Duxford and Old Warden, as the shingles contracted before I went has somewhat knackered me, and really affected the arthritis. Consequently, I haven't had time to sort out the almost 2,000 photos I took, but hope to post some in the next few days.
    As a taster, here's a couple taken from the camp site on the Saturday, as the C-47 formation passed over. I make little apology for the para dropping shot, which was taken from a range of over three miles. We were lucky, going to the show on Sunday, as the weather on Saturday was very mixed, with heavy rain most of the day, before clearing in the evening. On Sunday, it stayed dry, with a mix of sunshine and cloud, allowing some variable backgrounds for photos.
    More to follow from me, and I presume Karl, shortly.

    Nice shots Red Two, and thanks for the good wishes chaps. I still feel like sh*t, but hope to recover soon - apparently it takes around four weeks to be fully clear, although the rash can leave permanent scars.
    Anyway, I've struggled out of bed to get some fluids and food inside me, so thought I'd edit and post a few shots for now, taken in the morning, before the flying display started.
    These show a general view of some of the 'Daks', one of the Buchons which later provided a couple of superb displays, and one of the resident Mustangs 'Ferocious Frankie', of the 361st FG, as it departed to, then returned from, a display elsewhere.
