I was at Flying Legends for the weekend,stayiing with a squadmate,Batz,who works for one of the flying companies based there.One of the squad from Estonia,Hintz,also came for the weekend.Only have a cr*ppy camera so you wont get any flying pics from me. Big thanks to Batz for putting up with us,getting us exclusive access to the show,and making us push tiger Moths and DH Rapides around when everyone else had gone home!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Uther, it was good to see you and Hintz, and the DD.

That model of the Britsh monoplane WW1 fighter; I saw this one in the Shuttleworth collection the day before.

Excellent, hob nob or Rich tea?

Not allowed into service but popular with Senior Officers as hacks...seems a shame they didn't let it have a go.

You can't beat a nice hob nob.I also discovered that the official duxford shop was selling ice creams cheaper than the vans outside,so at least i could eat that weekend.

Gosh! Is that Batz? He's the nice chap that sold me the flight in the Harvard. I'm still buzzing!
Send him my regards. I hope he doesn't break his leg again.

Thanks for taking the time to meet with us Uther and Stathem. It was a pleasure meeting you both and perhaps we will get a chance to fly together before too long.

Here is a picture of our meeting. From left to right we have Uther's friend from Estonia, Uther,
DD_Frior-One, our chaplain, DD_Guitarman, DD_Fotoflyer, DD_Doubletap and our newest DD, I recruited in the Red Lion pub.

Hi blairgowrie, good to see you made it back ok. It was good to have a chat with you.

Sorry I couldn't catch up with you later, I was sure I would have recognised those caps but no joy.

I posted the best of my pics in Hanglands thread here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/4991054275/p/2). Mind you they don't compare with Yambretta's pics.

Hope to catch up with you online and maybe at a future event.

Magnificent shots. Really good considering the difficult lighting conditions that always prevail at airshows. My Danger Dog comrades are a scruffy looking bunch, eh?

I now know where I've seen BG before....remember the scene in the movie BoB, where they old guy came wandering into the shelter bemoaning "they got the Red Lion"....? In the post on the DD site, they had shots of ........"the Red Lion".

So......... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
