Not exactly the best weather for visiting an air show but I shall be attending on Saturday. Anyone else?

Weather looks to be OK for tomorrow now.  I'm spending the w/e camping in deepest Suffolk, so won't be there.  Post us some pics Axion!

Unfortunately my pics were restricted by the use of an iPhone, hence not very clear and extremely small to boot.

Duxford is a remarkable place and I was very fortunate to gain closed access to one of the flyable Spits. Simply stunned and amazed, these cockpits are tiny! Some of the pilots must have been literally shoehorned into these holes, can't imagine how claustrophobic they must have felt with the canopy closed, and that's coming from a submariner!

You think that's small, have you seen the size of the 109 pit?
