    Alas the mighty Lancaster eluded me this year, it was due at Whitehaven and again at RAF Leuchars but due to weather and technical gremlins i missed it, got quite a few on prints though that i will have to get scanned. I've never been down to Culdrose i'm afraid from what i've read though they usually have quite a good show.

    well it's not a huge show, it's more worth the visit to yeovilton, thay do a great show with allot of RN participation (as you'd expect) and the traditional close to the air displays is a simulated marine assult with harriers and many, many helicopters it's very impressive......

    Those WW1 biplane pix are neat.

    If you have any info on the planes you take pix of, please let us know.

    No need to say "sorry".

    Im always interested in seeing the planes that fly in the UK as many of them have never flown here in the US/Canada

    Great pics Chris, awesome shots. The fact the BBMF didn't turn up at Leuchars really annoyed me (it was the main reason I went) although the rest of the show was good. Funnily enough I have almost the exact same picture of the Spitfire SM845 and the P-51 Old Crow. Your pics of them flying though are much better than mine, great shots.

    Yes it is understandable but (also understandably) it annoying for those who turned up to see them fly...
