You are a good sport Patrick!

The 'XXXX' behind measure the size of Rich's coke cup before he went shopping for a new cold box!

Thanks for a good day everybody

Cheers

Love the shot of Paddy, you are a great sport :thumb:
But of course nobody actually took a picture - right? this aircraft does not have a 'D' on the fin therefore it was out of bounds!

Man - I look like a monk! What is this grey round the sides and dark on top lark! - the skunk look?

Keep them coming - I am sure there are more - Mark has some corkers!

I tried chatting to a few, but without much joy :S :S

Guessing everyone was too focussed on the impending Base Tour in the morning, and then the RC135 circuit bashing in the late afternoon???


Can't say that I blame them at all.............................. :P :P :P

Agree with Pune - no need for any apologies.

At the end of the day, I guess we all had a great time and came away with plenty of photos - taken inside or outside of the fence.

I hope to return again next year. If I do, I'll place a NOTAM in the 'Heads Up' section to give plenty of warning :P :P


Cheers all

Hi J&T :P

It had to be removed, or Amy, our great niece, would not give Uncle Patrick a 6th birthday kiss, 'cos of 'that furry thing under your nose' :lol:

That's me put in my place by yet another woman :whistle:

Best regards and love to Terri.x :thumbs:

It was an awesome day, and great to meet good aviation friends yet again :thumbs:

Special thanks to Darren, despite that 'Postman Pat' shot :Wow:

Paddyboy :clap:

Hi Paddy

Not everyone on the trailer went inside!

I'm in the pic (4th from the right, blue and white footy shirt on), and I was in the field all day :P :P

Hope you all had a great day behind the wire


Roger
Don't feel left out Roger, you were photographed from the inside looking out instead :lol:
