Nice day out.

Nice day out today at Silloth (Cumbria) celebrating 150 years of Seafaring.
Should have had a "Fly-Past" of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, to
commemorate Silloth Airfield's participation in the War Effort, but they
were grounded at Blackpool Airport due to bad weather!!! One plane did
manage an appearance though, what a sight for sore eyes on a glorious sunny
day!!!!

next to see another attraction, the "Pirate" ship Vinca ,complete with
Jazz band, Dancing girls and costumed pirates which chugged round the docks
all day long, with the "Pirates" taking pot shots at the crowds with some
fine period muskets, (Blanks of course!!!) but VERY noisy!!!!

There was a Griffon engined Spitfire at the Bristol Balloon Festival today. I could see him clearly from my back bedroom window.Possibly PS853, the Company Spit as it is but a stones throw from the Filton airfield to Ashton Court.
The Rolls-Royce Spitfire is an unarmed, high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft, one of 79 Mk XIXs built at Supermarine, Southampton. It is usually flown by Phill O'Dell, Rolls-Royce Chief Test Pilot. He joined the company in November 2001 having completed 18 years in the Royal Air Force, pilots

Went to White Waltham on Sat for festival of wings wheels speed and steam. Only four SEs but lots of other stuff to look at including 'flying circus' with Tiger Moth etc doing limbo tricks, bursting baloons and flour bombing latrine tent. Nice site and the makings of a good rally - hope it grows SE wise.
