Scramble! Headcorn bob air show
 
Good morning all, just a head's up, I got an offer from Groupon in my inbox for half price tickets for the Battle of Britain air show at Headcorn Ashford (TN27 9HX) I went last year and had a very enjoyable day, I'm going on the Sat 30/6/18 but it is a two day event so you could also go on the Sunday 1/7/18.
Lots of ww2 aircraft very close up ideal for the 40-150, I'll add some shots from last year later but search for Aerolegends on Flickr to get a taste, they where offering flights in the Devon next to the spitfires for some air to air shots for about £50 I think.

Groupon was saying it's a time limited offer so it may pay to act fast, Adult weekend tickets are only £9 with discounts for over 60's, kids and family deals, view Headcorn website for more info www.headcornevents.co.uk
Hope to see you there *chr

Thanks John, that works just fine :) it's well worth the small fee and the trip, plus if you're feeling a bit flush there is VIP ticket option £37.99(one day) or£69.99(two day) with lunch included and you get to walk within touching distance (Do not touch) :)
Last year there was a large number of milatry vehicles on show plus the onsite museum which I have yet to explore also you can camp if you look at the 9 ticket options available, enjoy.*chr

Thanks guys, the above shots were from 2017 to give a feel of the event, I posted the last shot last night to flag up that it's on this weekend, my android tab would only seem to copy and paste a overly large file and it shrunk the message and hid it doh! Any who I went today and had a lovely ride down and promptly fell off it in the field, luckly only my pride was hurt. It didn't seem as good as last year but I still enjoyed it and saw a Meshasmit 109 and spitfire perform a mock dog fight just as I was leaving, may post pix later if anygood.

IT'S ON AGAIN TOMORROW AND YOU CAN STILL DOWN LOAD TICKETS VIA THE ABOVE GROUPON LINK *chr
