Default Classic Jets #74 - Abingdon, U.K.

Richard Spreadbury organised and held the first of the years Classic Jet Meets at the former RAF Abingdon.
As always with these events they are extremely well organised, with hot food and refreshments all day, many thanks to Dick and his team.

Whilst the weather didnt all totally co-operate, plenty of flying took place.

Yukky day, but Dick’s team did us proud as usual. Amazing amount of flying and new models considering the forecast

Sunshine for #75 please.

First time out with my GoPro Hero 6 Black. Brought it just for the 240fps capability. Just so happens its water proof as well.

Sure. Guess I could do that. I'll do it next time I goto a CJ event. With luck some of the pilots might even talk to me.
