Monday at Fairford.

Post by Dave934 » Wed Mar 18, 2020 2:17 pm

My first time "spotting" at Fairford. Can't believe I haven't been before, I had a great day.
Thanks to Slogen 51 for info where to go, and the Scottish gentleman (sorry I didn't get your name) for letting me follow him around like a lost sheep all day!
Much appreciated both of you.
The day started cold..

Nice shots Dave, they look similar to mine. It was me (the Scottish fellow) who was chatting with you most of the morning. Nice to meet you and thanks for the company. Well worth the drive out and a great first visit for you.
