    Would just like to add a thread from my favourite show of the year. It was as good as getting a flying legends for those of us 'oop north' 5 x Spitfires, 2 x P-51D's, Hurricane, Dakota, Anson plus some quality aeros a cracking Hunter debut (XE601) plus a couple of the RAF's demos. A great day out and well worth putting in the diary when it's held again in 2007........
    some of these you have already seen but anyway................

    Actually CC, I do like the T-33 shot. :lol:
    Not simply because it's in Canadian markings though. ;)

    The show was a great success, but origionally it was going to have a lot of RAF participation, but with RIAT being on the same weekend they got stuffed by the RAF. I think this worked to the shows advantage and hopefully through a few contacts made during the weekend i might get to bend the organisers ears a fair bit before the 2007 show.

    Hi Chris, As you know, i went to this air show last year and really enjoyed it (even more so as it was free), but last month a friend sent me the video of the whole show..... tiz good hun.
    Im calling off at Walney after my Hadrians Wall walk at the end of this month, have they finished the museum yet?

    Hey Skimmy, that's my daughters favourite plane the T -33. she wants flying lessons next year, I think she will be a natural.
