Awesome Catalina

The Duxford based Consolidated PBY Catalina G-PBYA appeared at the seafront show at Eastbourne and the chance to get this aircraft Low-level with the sea as a backdrop was too good an opportunity to miss. It was a long wait while it showed off to the crowd some two miles away, I was on the lofty perch of Beachy head waiting and hoping she would fly past close enough and low enough........ she did!

Turkish AF back via Mildenhall

A rather good day yesterday that proves that a bit of planning makes for results.
I spent most of the day in Norfolk doing some wildlife photography, then back home via Mildenhall to catch the 5:30-6:00 p.m. arrival of the Turkish air force's F16s, they have been at Nellis in the USA, and have a rest stop in Suffolk.
