A good turnout today at Brize, watched them both go out this morning and then return this afternoon.

I was at Marham today to see the old girl with the wind beneath her for a little while longer!! Fantastic sight and sound, makes me very proud to be British, what a wonderful ambassador for the country, an example of proper engineering excellence.

Can't say as much for my video camera that went U/S - bloody Chinese rubbish!

We will be at Brize for the photocall, very much looking forward to it and I'm going to make the trip to Bruntingthorpe on Wednesday with a working video camera hopefully :D

Mark.

NCL was as clagged in as it's possible to be. Only two hours earlier it looked like a Summer day!

Nice clean approach with a lovely, smokey exit. Blinkin' marvelous.

I'm not going to post the pics on the board 'cos they're pants #-o but you can view them on my Flickr account if you're desperate.

Nice of you to say so Rich however the flat, grey conditions were always going to make the going tough.

Lets hope it'll be better on Sunday!

Great Coningsby pics Mike, so nice to see the sun and blue sky came out for the graceful bird.

The ITV News article was very good, I have tried to find it on ITV Player to post a link here, but can't find one, does anyone else know how and where to look/
