Wedgetail arrives at Waddington 17-07-17

A very nice arrival at lunchtime in great light was the Australian Wedgetail that had been at RIAT. It should be hanging around for a few days.

Looks like it's straight from the showroom!
I do miss my time in the RAF, but every month it reminds me how great it was with a lovely big cheque

Departed Waddington about 10am, and was last seen heading downwind over Branston at about 13.15.
