We had the yearly big airshow at Wright/Patterson AFB recently, but the wind has to be just right for approaches to overfly my house, and when they do I'm often too late to get a look let alone a picture. One year in the past the CAF showed up in force and I got a peek at their close formation. It included a B25, P40, Corsair, Hellcat, & a Spitfire in Invasion livery. PaulE
I was on Troy a few months ago and visited the museum at Wright Patterson, awesome museum, really worse a visit.

Looking forward to the weekends pics John, have a great time.

Steve.
I bet I took 500 pictures last year and only kept a handful, my lens weighs 2.2kg + the camera it’s over 3kg which can end getting quite heavy over the coarse of the day, so a lot of blurry pictures, it’s not the sort of thing I can use a tripod or monopod for

Didnt realise it was on this weekend john , isnt it usually sept time? Spot of my own , was out lincolnshire delivering and a F 35 lightning flew over quite low and slow ( was gobsmacked to see one so never even thought of getting my phone out and taking a pic!) probably heading for a landing at coningsby. Theres only four in the UK so i believe( RAF ones )

It is usually but something to do with the tides meant they brought it forward.

It would have been nice if they had the F35 here, don’t think that will happen for quite some time

Today’s arrivals at Farnborough were an LM-130 J Hercules, a Blenheim and Spitfire - the latter flew right over my house.

Brilliant spot. Yes, I would be a bit more than surprised too.

Pretty sure two Apaches just flew over Bromley heading east. Maybe connected with Trump's visit? They were certainly military choppers with ordinance attached to the "wings" or whatever they're called.

Not over my house, but over my head as I cycled past Biggin Hill - the two seater Spitfire that lives there.
