As promised, pics from today. Hope to see you all whatever the weather! Patrice in the Hawk 75 Brian and Alan in P-40s Anna and Staggerwing
Should have some pics later on but latest is that Hawk 75 and both P-40s have been up and about to day in preparation for the display tomorrow.

Lots of fantastic pictures on all the aircraft forums with excellent pictures of our aircraft – we thought you might enjoy a reminder about those who were up and about extremely early on Sunday morning (and before) to make sure it was a great experience:
Practice displays and flights by two very different TFC aircraft. The P40b did some practice display work and the Carbon Cub gave a contrasting view of airmanship. More contrasts on Sunday – one of the newest Cubs was joined by one of the oldest Cubs! Thanks to Brian Marshall for the pictures:
