    I took my Mum & Biggles to see the flypast, we were just along the bridlepath alongside Ladybower. Chris and Rich almost ran over my toes as they weaved their way up the track.

    The sound of the Spit made the hairs on my neck stand up and covered me in goosebumps – a beautiful noise.

    Anyone know what happened to the Hurricane? Biggles was hoping to see it.

    Bugger it can’t get it to load in the window – click this link to see the footage from the Lancaster as it flew over earlier:

    Just watching ‘The Dambusters, 70 years on’ on BBC 2. I keep getting dust in me eyes for some reason.

    Love that 3rd one Jon 🙂

    Great day today. My birthday too. There were some big old lenses out to play but I only have the standard kit lens on my camera. Maybe that’s next year’s birthday list sorted.

    Parked on Mortimer Road and hiked over the moor to Derwent via Foulstones. Huge crowds, really great atmosphere, everybody chatting as we walked over. Bigger crowds on the hills than when there’s a big charity walk on.

    Had to go to London last night, so here’s one more (crap phone) pic:-

    Whilst riding your bike to go and watch old planes fly over resevoirs is undoubtedly a cool thing, the ability to do so is partly down to the 55000 bomber command airman who lay down their lives.

    (The guy who’s surname I carry was a tailgunner in a Pathfinder squadron. No, he didn’t make it back.)

    Some of mine. Not the best due to location but was great being bang under them

    Thanks for posting, wonderful images I cannot imagine how emotional it must have been to see it live.

    For me it was the Tornados together banking left turning their afterburners? Towards me as they passes the hill. The heat haze/noise made me involuntarily laugh loudly 😀

    Southport airshow with hora jnr next 🙂
