It was a very drab grey day at Bruntingthorpe Airfield in Leicestershire on Sunday when the Air Museum held it's early summer open day with the jet aircraft making run pasts. You stood for hours on the crowd line in the biting wind wating for something to happen, interspersed with minutes of exciting action:
- The sight and sound of an English Electric Lightning rushing past twenty or so yards away on a fast taxi;
- Feeling the sound of the Nimrod in your bones as it rumbled past
- The sight of the Victor and the Vulcan bombers on the runway.
Somehow it did seem worth it.
The photographs were not too good though, the conditions were not conducive to good photography. Maybe the late summer event will have sun, one can hope
