Nice set Nick and sums up the weekend well - as you say from Friday to Sunday morning some good arrivals, departures and a 'show'

Great to see all again and thanks for making a 'Southerner' feel welcome. Here's to next time!

Great set Nick, looks like you struck it lucky with some quality images as usual. I left Mildenhall lunchtime on the 18th to head home.
Cheers.

Cracking set

Like RCH 234 KC-10

( Too be honest the weekend up here seems like time off from spotting but there is always the exception to the rule)
