I beg to differ Steve, the P51D Mustang gets my vote. Good to see a razorback P47 flying though.

Thanks Alex, yes it was an excellent day and I was delighted to meet you and have a chat. The poppy petals from the Lanc that you gave me will be especially treasured.

I have a number of people who would have wanted them, and I should have picked up many more, especially considering a large wad of about 1000 landed about 20 feet from me!
