Back Garden :: 6/6/2013

For good reasons the blog is called "Warbirdskies"....

This afternoon has been quite busy overhead and in the surrounding area. The sound of a Merlin had me scrambling out into the garden with a pair of binos to see a P-51 circling just to the north. From the yellow nose I figured it may be Ferocious Frankie out for some air tests.
He's been back a couple of times since though managing to catch me unprepared camera wise!!!
So here is a photo from last August...

Duxford - 25/8/2012
The resident Duxford "Snaparazzi" have reported that "FF" has indeed taken to the air several times today - so kind they should head to my location to fly about...

From the OFMC website FAQs  -

How much will a display cost?

"A local display will be a minimum of £1,500"....


Maybe I should paint over the big white "DX" that's on my roof?....
