Merlins and skylarks

Old Buckenham Airshow

The editor saw today's airshow from a field somewhat distant from the end of the airfield runway. His attempts at photography just prove that taking pictures of fast flying aircraft requires a special skill and he still has to learn it.

The weather for the flying display just held out. Then there was 5o mm (2 inches) of rain during the next two hours.

One memorable spot in the display was the sound of the Merlin engines of the Battle of Britain Memorial flight's Hurricane and Spitfire being joined by the voices of a couple of skylarks in full song. No noisy aeroplanes were going to stop them performing...
