MikeB on a U-2.... [Video & Recordings]

Post by MikeB » Thu Oct 21, 2010 8:28 am

Popped up to Fairford again this morning to see Dragon 53 depart this time... excuse if they're crap edits, quickly done on my laptop!

Once again the crews have gotten a bit arty with her overnight, this time with a much better slogan... :whistle:
