    If the F-15E pair have a tail code LN, could you grab a couple of shots of them for me? You are going to love the T-28 pair, they are cool airplanes!

    Would be nice to see a video of the Meteor and a couple of the Spits and the Hurricane would go amiss either.

    That Tiger Cat is a real hum dinger CC it gave a sweet show at the Legends event and the forecast is for light winds and sunny periods so with any luck should be a great display.
    Always a room available Eric no sweat.

    There is not much difference between the 2 in my opinion. The mpg has annoying text on the screen the whole time and the file is more than twice the size but other than that there is little difference in quality.

    Cheers GN
    Well the weather was nearly perfect apart from everything was back lite by the sun but a good show was had by all unfortunatley the Meteor and the Wildcat had problems so did'nt make an apperance and Evan you asked me to get the F15's tail marking's unfortunatly they only made 2 passes and so quick that most of the time all you could do was hear them but the commentator mention that both they and the tanker that made flew over where from your old haunt of Lakenheath.
    I am a bit busy this week (my boy decided to go Paint Balling and broke his femur falling down a hill 60 miles from home so the hostpital visits are going to be a pain in the arse) but I will post my shots as I finish resizing them and editing the pics videos.
    Heres a couple for starters

    Lovely pictures, Lee. You didn't say "break a leg" before he went, did you?

    Jeez, I didn't even read the bit about your boy, Lee. #-o
    I hope it was a fun paintball game if he got a broken leg out of it.

    I reckon someone took it a little too serious and ran out of ammo, then proceeded to beat Lee's child with a stick. ...I wasn't there, honest ...

    You would prefer to beat me with a stick D I still won't learn anything, they tried doing it when I was at school.
    Anyway a few more snaps from the Autumn Show last Sunday.
