    Camera in hand most definitely ! The Lancaster is due to appear - the UK airshow scene desperately needs some Axis aircraft of any type, let alone a Ju88..... :(

    Those Spitfires on grass are so cool ! Good pictures Martin. [​IMG]

    Those scoops under the Griffin Spit look like they would really slow the aircraft down alot.

    Post more if you have them please !

    Thank you for the last picture Martin ! Even that looks good to me. If you had tilted the camera up alittle to elimiate the concrete strip you could have said it was from WWII circa 1943. :D

    But really they are excellent pictures and I do appreciate all the photos and information you have put on the forum for others to learn. [​IMG]

    I shall be 'off to Duxford' again tomorrow for the very last airshow of the season. It's been a lousy year for weather in 2008 and tomorrow looks like being no exception ; but I'm looking forward to a relaxing day meeting up with guys from another Forum, browsing the trade stands, seeing some of the veteran signings, etc......

    I 'need' a nice 'boys' day out'......;)

    The airshow should have been held up here in Cheshire, the weather was glorious all day...;)

    If the past two years are anthing to go by, I wouldn't hold my breath for good weather next year, Martin. This years british 'summer' feels like it lasted for three days rather than three months...:rolleyes:
