The VAC fly in was a roaring success. I saw 70 aircraft which is a personal record and many were of interesting varieties. I counted 4 Moths and there were quite a few other interesting aircraft there. I could really write a lot of waffle now but I honestly feel that in this case, a picture is worth a thousand words and I will let the pictures do the talking!

First though, I would like to give a special mention to G-ADKL, a Hornet Moth which I found so beautiful and it was clear to me that the owners had put a lot of money, time and effort into keeping such a beautiful aircraft in such pristine condition.

No thanks go to G-ASTG and G-CBJG as both required some serious detective work to find their G- registrations as they carry their Luftwaffe and Portuguese Air Force liveries respectively. (Don’t get me wrong, it was a treat to see them as they were real treasures)
