 OV-10 Bronco display @ East Kirkby
Image

Hi folks,
One of the main attractions at Saturday's airshow was this superb OV-10 Bronco:
Image

An ex West German Luftwaffe aircraft, which still wears it's service markings (including hi-vis orange training unit markings) this visitor to the U.K. made the trip to the U.K. from it's home in Belgium.
Image

The plane's also been decorated with special markings marking centenary commemorations for WWI..
Image
Image
Image
Image

The pilot performed an amazing routine which showed off the aircraft's superb agility & short field landing/ take-off performance:

This was the first time I'd seen a Bronco "in the flesh" & must say I'm most impressed.. hard to believe that this aeroplane dates from the 1960's! The U.S.A.F. retired their fleet just before second Gulf War, but they've recently brought some back to support U.S. special forces fighting in Iraq.
Image

Cheers
T'shot.

Of coarse the real star of the show remains "Just Jane", looking resplendent in her fresh coat of paint ;-)

Hi folks,
I'll tack this onto this thread, a few pictures from todays car show held in the historic English town of Stamford..

A 60's icon owned by a 60's icon, this E type Jaguar was once owned by football (Soccer for you guys) legend George Best:

I'm a sucker for these two from 1970's ..

It's like a 1:1 scale Hot Wheels toy:

Many thanks,

I guess I do tend to take my surroundings for granted, I'm lucky to live in a rural area that's dotted with many old towns & fine buildings.. this was photo was taken (on a rainy day) from my bedroom window:

We're often visited by passing hot air balloons..

I work, as a delivery driver, for a small chain of stationers who've shops like this one in Oundle:
