Thanks for sharing your shots Mike I really enjoyed them, I missed Bold Tigers dept Part 1 yesterday but was lucky to have been there this morning to witness Part 2. A super few hours spent at the Heath in decent weather. Nice for the MOs and Kc10 to do a little fly past OTT it really put the iceing on the cake.
