Duxford American Airshow 2016 – WW1 dogfight

Yet another great airshow put on by Duxford. This time an American Airshow. Lots of photos taken, so I am putting them on here in sections. This section is a collection of photos showing the simulated dog fight between a Focker DR1 and 2 SE5a’s. The skies were very overcast with no definition to them so the camera (i.e. me) struggled with them a little bit, but I am still happy with the outcome.

Coggeshall and Paycocke’s House and Gardens

Here are some photos of an afternoon’s visit to Coggeshall, Essex and Paycocke’s House and Gardens in Coggeshall. The house and gardens are run by the National Trust and well worth the visit.

Raise a glass to the Queen – Dannemora May 2016

Rally site, in a lovely areaAnother great time at Dannemora with the evening devoted to celebrating the Queen’s Birthday. We started off with lunch with our friends eating cheese and biscuits and trying to empty some of the nearly empty bottles of spirits, we did a pretty good job of it as well! This was followed by watching several games of Boules where Lance became a ‘stand-in lady’ to help out the numbers. πŸ™‚

The entertainment was provided by Dave Mills and Clint Price and was first class. All in Β all a great weekend put on by a great team of marshals. Thanks to them all.
