Re: Memories of the Mighty One

Re: RAF 100 Flypast

A few of us were at the top of St Pauls, Golden Gallery, about 350ft ASL. Fantastic viewing/photographic point south of the flypast - but there was a constant queue of tourists starting from the Stone Gallery (1st exterior level) to the Golden Gallery (2nd). Queuing takes about 15 minutes and you n...

Re: B-1

Re: Coningsby German EF2000s
