This was a huge to do. I wanted to get down there for it, but couldn't swing it. It took a lot to get this one together and it has been a few years since they have done it. Will they do it again is anyones guess.
Wellllll...... I flew out to the States with a mate especially for this show....we even booked the airline flights, accommodation and car hire the year before !!!. Funny thing is ref the car hire, we'd booked a small car ...a Diahatsu of some sort. When we got to car hire place, the said they didnt have any left and where were we going ?. So we told them 'We're going to the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends !'.
'Oh good' they said...'We'll give you an upgrade but theres a problem !'.
'Bugger' we said
'We've only got a convertible if thats ok ?.
So we were forced at no extra charge to take delivery of an 07 plate, Ford Mustang convertible. We're still smiling !!!
And on top of that, we were the very first two through the gates when the finally opened !!!.
Was it worth it ?. I took over 5400 pictures at that event alone (not including the two days spent at the USAF Museum, the trip to the Wright Brothers Cycle shop and the trip in Jim Terry's B-25 'Pacific Prowler'.
I can only describe this event as without doubt, THE BEST AIRSHOW I HAVE EVER BEEN TO.....I'm not biased, I just have this fetish for Mustangs....ooeeer, can I say that ?
If anyone is interested, I'll post up a few shots later. In the meantime, heres a few as a taster.
