If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

Scampton Thursday 7 September. It had been a long grey morning with only two arrivals, when chippy Chipmunk appeared on the horizon at midday. How we photographers smiled in satisfaction that something else was arriving on the Thursday 'arrivals day' - holy moly! DHC Chipmunk (WK558) about to land. Done in sepia to give an olde worlde effect.
