We had a single Spitfire playing in my "back garden" yesterday, glorious sight and sound.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Nice!

 

Can't wait until next week - just hope the forecast is good for Tuesday as otherwise they've said they'll bring it forward to Monday.. but I can't take Monday off!

Wow, what a day (ignoring the 5.5hr journey to get there and (still on the) 3.5hr journey home :( ) - just phenomenal!. Goosebumps all afternoon. Will post pics once I'm home and sorted through 300 or so! Got some absolute crackers :)

Finally got around to uploading the best of my pictures from last week's amazing day!

 

A friend of mine lent me his 70-300mm lens but it wouldn't auto-focus with my camera... so these were all manually focussed. I'm pretty chuffed with some of them I have to say  :thumbsup:

 

Anyway, I'll let the photos do the talking....

This guy aborted take off and went off to look for a man with a spanner. He then went up last once the ground crew had fixed him :)

Some fantastic picture there Paul, looks like it was well worth the journey and traffic jams.

 

As an aside, I took the pictures below at Goodwood on 14th August 2014 (last year), I believe this was also part of the filming for the event last week, over a year later.
