It looked superb!

 

I travel between Southampton and Plymouth quite often for work and see quite a few things on the road. Last friday on the home to Plymouth i passed a Scammell Crusader EKA recovery. That was between Taunton and the A303. The weekend before that i spotted a stunning 1940's Bedford MW with trailer making its way slowly up Haldon Hill just outside Exeter.

 

Just call me eagle eyes!!

There was a Spitfire flying around at Dorset on Saturday I think, but it wasn't to do with the show as it seemed to be flying more over Blandford Camp??

I was at the Army Air Corps airfield at Middle Wollop on Saturday for the families open day and the Spitfire arrived at 4.20 p.m. and gave a fantastic display. Possibly the same one that you saw. I have included some pictures of their static aircraft on display. John.
