Sorry, no flowers or cake or crochet today.
Military aircraft instead.
Last year I forgot the suncream and went home with a face like a tomato. This year I remembered the suncream. It rained.
It was very windy too.
'Hi, just jumped out of a plane'
RAF pilots are cool
They have cool planes.
Flight Lieutenant Jules Fleming is the coolest though.
She's sitting on the wing of her Hawk.
There were some serious lenses around.
Pretty big lollies too.
The Dakota in its D-Day colours. These were the planes from which paratroopers jumped into Normandy.
The skies were very black. There were some heavy showers. We got wet.
But the sun appeared in time for the main attraction.
Hard to believe its first flight was in 1953.
Unfortunately the Spitfire didn't display today so we made do with a liquid form.
