Just for you mate


Also just noticed what it has on the tail- Cavallino Rampante!! The prancing horse! Ironically which was used originally by Count Francesco Barraca, an Italian WW1 ace who was KIA- Enzo Ferrari used the horse after Barracas mother said it would bring him good luck.

Meet you there next year! Can't make it this summer
I miss some english beer soooo much!


@ Gilly: In italy it's still possible to see the Baracca's engine, taken from his last plane crash. It's expsed at "Museo storico dell'Aereonautica" on the Bracciano Lake, near Rome.

A pic? I hope that's with arms outstretched, and saying "Bogies" instead of "Cheese"?

Well, I have no idea what to expect, really. I've heard the Horsemen will be there, or something. Other than that I have no idea what to expect!
Best place to look is here
http://duxford.iwm.org.uk/server/show/conEvent.3526

They've also brought an app out for iPhone and android which is worth having. As well as the horsemen I do know this is coming over from Austria

The flight line you pay for as you enter it. I think last years proceeds went to a local charity.
Well worth every penny.

Where you camping overnight Gilly?
