Week 28 – Old Ladies of the Air

Dropping in at Old Warden airfield, near Biggleswade, is often a rewarding pastime, particularly at the end of a day’s work.  Here are two old ladies, one a little punchier than the other: a Spitfire MkVC of the Free Czech Air Force and a Travelair 4000.

Week 27 – An English Country Fête

You’re not going to be bowled over at the excitement of an English Country Fête, particularly one at a very small village.  But it was very pleasant to visit Hatley in Cambridgeshire and see the sights brought together by a few dedicated people, drink some tea and find a cake or two to eat without guilt (I was supporting the locals, of course).
