Super, love some of the angles. You found a good spot.
B-25 my favourite with detail.
Thanks Andy.

Pete.

thank you Pete. I parked at the community centre in Duxford Village (Hunts Road) CB22 4RE which is actually next to the school . From there walked the 200m to Brewers Field park which is opposite the school in St Johns Street (CB224RA) , the school was also open for parking. Within the park there's a mound and we went on top of that but it's not essential to be atop it.

I headed back to the community centre for the last hour or so of the show including the Reds and photographed them from the community centre football pitch, that is slightly better for the Reds as they don't go north of the display centre line so the arcing urns are closer to you. They charge £7 per car (the school is £10 but you get a cup of tea and a cake included!).

Great set Andy - that DC-6 "hedge-hopping" is lovely. Thanks for the detail on parking etc. I was going to go but had last-minute changes. Now I know where to go exactly I can try another time.
