    Sunday the 24th at Point Cook RAAF Base is holding an Air Pageant which will attract the Mk VIII Spitfire, Mustangs, Hudson, Boomerang, Wirraway and DH Vampire. The Vampire isnt listed but I saw it fly over my house at low level heading towards the base.

    Anyone in Victoria should make the trip, I am.

    Well estimating around 180 shots were taken today. Mostly the flying action is on film and the rest is in digital form. Got a few videos too which I'll convert to windows files and upload later this week.

    Ripper day can't stress enough how much effort RAAF Point Cook put into this event. Certainly gave me some food for thought about joining the RAAF.

    Seeing as the boomer was requested here are some PREVIEWS I havent sorted my shots yet. Ill post them within the next few days including the spitfire and if anyone wants a wallpaper size version just ask with you email address and I'll send em off. Once I get the filmed developed I'll scan them in and post those aswell.

    More to come

    Like the Yak! Thanks for posting the photos Heinz. Is that a Bristol Freighter in the background, behind 'Suzy-Q'?
