Those little "toy" planes again.

As some of you may or may not know I regularly attend "Warbird" meetings all over the country.

Myself and my trusty old 1/4 Scale Fokker DVIII took the anual pilgrimage to Barkston Heath, home of the British Nationals.

As usual camping was the order of the weekend. Got down to -3 degrees on the Saturday night. I think it is time to trade the tent in for a small caravan.

The weather was typically April showers. Shame this year they included some really heavy hail showers.

So despite the worst efforts of the weather, a good couple of days was had by all.

In no particular order a few shots from the weekend. Was way to busy yarnin and enjoying myself to do to much photography.

Did fly on the Saturday afternoon. Took off in a strong wind and after a few circuits one of the many showers fell. For those of you who wear glasses, never fly in the rain! Could not see a blurry thing. So landed and as is usual with the DVIII over she nosed. Another prop gone.

Oh well.

The pictures.
