I was fortunate in being given a ticket (cheers Terry) for the Marshall Aerospace Centenary event, and what an event it was too!

It's a while since I've been up there, from doing ground run training with LM Aero, through to RAF acceptance checks on the C-130J's as they came over the pond, so it was good to see the place again. If you hadn't already guessed, I have a soft spot for Fat Albert, well, we shared 11 years together.

The participant list was outstanding, with a number I hadn't seen before, I thought it was very well thought out.

I also feel compelled to write a letter of thanks to MAe, whilst a centenary selebration, it certainly outshone (literally) a number of the regular airshows this year. Whilst parking might likely be an issue, it could be done again, but I imagine would lhave to be a viable proposition for the board. If there were enough recognition of how well this one went, well, who knows......

Anyway, on with the show:

It was good to meet an old acqaintance, I probably spent more hours trucking around the world in XV299 than any other, she could tell some stories!


Arrival of Sally B, a running break startled the birds..


This outfit was up and down like a fiddlers elbow, so I can only imagine a profitable day was had


Never seen a trio of Cessna 172's before, and had to laugh at the reg G-Herc










Needless to say, the crowd swelled when this was in the circuit




Almost teary eyed again....




















My favourite shot of the day, possibly the year, I don't think it could have been any straighter

After looking at your pictures your panning technique is better than mine. I agree with you on your last picture of Sally B, very good.
