Post by DogTailRed2 »

Looks like it's going to be a good day, great weather with a nice selection of aircraft.
Bit early yet with just the Classic Wings aircraft flying.

Cannot remember when I was last down there but must be around 8 - 9 years ago at least. Though I do remember quite clearly that I timed my journey so that I arrived around 8am and already there were queues and queues of traffic.

Even after parking up I went to have a look at the static aircraft I noticed that many people were pitching their positions right at the front by 9 am reminded me of the Germans when on holiday, getting to the sunbeds by the pool before any-one else!! :wall:

Oh sorry, nearly forgot to mention brilliant screenshot!!

Regards
Nigel.
I used to be an optimist but with age I am now a grumpy old pessimist.

Hi Nigel,

yes it's always busy at Duxford. I go most years and aim to get there by 8am. Certainly no later than 9:30.
I've never been close to the fence except on bad weather days.

Just watched two Sally B's take off :lol:

atb,

Ted.

So you've been lazing the day away watching AI, Ted? Thanks for sharing the pictures, I won't be there tomorrow.
I'm there - in the B17G shot, I'm the ones in the red shirt & white trousers and in the red shirt & white trousers, though I seem to have lost my hair in both pics of my multiple personalities. :help:

Lazing! I'll have you know I've been flying the C47. Well okay lazing and flying the C47.
I did wonder if the images were based on anyone from this forum.
BTW you certainly get around a bit you're over by the super hangar now :lol:.
Sadly this is likely to be the only airshow I get to see this year :-(
At least the weather is good for todays flying.

"though I seem to have lost my hair in both pics of my multiple personalities. :help:"
Well you know what they say, hair today gone tomorrow.
