If you're into vintage planes you've come to the right place. :D

This is the air show that Jamie, me and our wives went to see at the weekend in Duxford.

I'll warn you, there's rather a lot of pictures here. I just couldn't stop snapping.
So, make yourself a drink, put your feet up and enjoy.

I told you to put your feet up. :roll:
I couldn't be bothered to sort thru' them all, just took a few bad ones out and posted the rest up.
Most are pretty good even if I do say so myself. :wink:

I have to say that with the lighting and the clouds, the pictures have an almost sepia feel to them. They could have been taken in WWII. :eek:

Glad you all like the pics. :D
I used to be into planes many years ago when I was making airfix kits.
It just seemed like a good idea for a day out and a chance to meet up with Jamie and his missus while they're on their hols.

Plus I've lived round the corner from Duxford airfield for years but never been. :oops:

Didn't see any Cougars but the show wasn't short of cats; Bearcats, Hellcats, Tigercats and Wildcats. They're all somewhere in those pics. :D

No problem Jamie. Tell Gill not to worry about tearing you away. We understand why. It was great to see you both too. :D
Hope we can organise this better next year. A few others on here were interested too.

Glad you like the pics and hope you enjoyed the rest of your hols.
If you like I can send you a DVD with all the pics in full resolution. The photobucket ones are about 1/3 of the original size.
PM me your address.

Throwing stones at planes could fall foul of the anti terror laws Phil. Id watch out for the FBI men :LOL:
