    Default BBMF Last flights of 2017

    Hi All,

    Yesterday were the last flights for 2017 for the BBMF and the last Spitfire Flight for one of their Pilots who is retiring from the RAF.

    Flt Lt Antony 'Parky' Parkinson MBE, joined the RAF at 18 and has been flying ever since. He was the first pilot to gain 1000 hours flying the Euro Fighter Typhoon, and has also flown over 1000 hours on 3 other types - Phantom F4, Tornado F3 and Hawk, having done 3 years with the Red Arrows. He also flew the F16 for 3 years with the Royal Netherlands Air Force and has over 7000 flying hours in total.

    I think we can say he can fly a bit.

    Here he is getting nice and Cozy with the Lanc.

    All good and as Bob said difficult to choose a favourite, but it has to go to number 2.

    Excellent set Paul, well captured and the narrative just puts a personal aspect to the images.
