A flypast today (Sunday)
from Southampton online......
There will also be the largest air display to take place over the city since the Millennium.

At 2.30pm, a formation of Allied aircraft including the P51-D Mustang, the Thunderbolt and the Kittyhawk will perform a series of solo passes. Then, an hour later, it will be the turn of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which includes the Lancaster Bomber, the Hawker Hurricane and Woolston-built Supermarine Spitfire.

But a planned appearance by "Sally B" - a B-17 bomber which featured in the film Memphis Belle, will not go ahead due to soaring insurance costs. Its place will instead be taken by another Second World War veteran - the DC-3 Dakota.

And all for free !!!!!

I Think it's a very valid post. The chap is just letting people know what is going on in Southampton. So if anyone is in the area they can go & take a look.

Thanks damage

Those are nice, thank you so much.

Number 6 is a work of art.

It may end up as my wallpaper for a time, with some very minor tweaking. Thanks again.
