Del got a call from the boys saying that they were going to go to the Duxford Warbirds Airshow on Saturday, but to miss the traffic they would have to leave at 6.00pm in the morning.. So Del ended up leaving for Kent on Friday afternoon to join them.. Al stayed on Derwent6 and looked after the fort..
We have had just the best weather here on the Thames and are making the most of it..
On Saturday Del jumped in with Bernie and Steve who kindly drove up the M11 to the airfield.. The whole reason for going, was that for the first time, twelve WW2 Spitfires were going to be flying in the air at the same time, almost like a full squadron, a sight not to be missed..
We got there early before the gates opened and then took some chairs in and got a good spot for the afternoon show.. we then had some nice bacon butties with a coffee and started to wander the stalls..
On Sunday Bernie dropped Del off at Swanley after they did a bit of driving around, reminiscing where they both grew up together.. Del got back to Al at midday with everything ship shape and it was nice to be back chilling with a glass of wine in the cratch of Derwent6 with some nibbles.. This primed us up for the World Cup final between Argentina and Germany.. and guess who won!!!
