Default Classic Jets #80 At Abingdon, U.K.

I attended one of Richard (Dick) Spreadbury's "Classic Jets" Meetings today at the former RAF Abingdon.
Todays event being quite special as it was event #80 the significance being that "Classic Jets" has been going now for twenty years, quite a record.
As always a big thank you to Dick and his team for this really well organised event, with full catering services too.
Whilst the title is "Classic Jets" it is pretty much "Run What You Brung" although today there was a good few Pilots with Jets that represented an earlier era.
This is a superb site with acres of smooth tarmac, however as with most locations one has to be mindful of no fly zones around the airfield.
I will post a few photographs.

Alistair Powers.
