    You are welcome. I'm not shooting from above outer 4, but more like between 2 and 3. Its one of my favorite places to shoot from. I might have to see if I can borrow a 600mm lens from Nikon this year to shoot from up there. I'm thinking I might be up there on Saturday.

    I can't wait to get up there, hopefully on Wednesday, but as things are looking, that might be tough.

    I thought I had heard that Pete Z was bringing another Vampire this year. I don't see him on the list of jet entry's. Any word on this?

    Sad to hear of Full Noise having issues but I hope it was minor.

    Perhaps those who know Stead can tell which hangar this is?

    That hangar is the closest hangar to Strega on the ramp, lots of mustangs have had stuff done in there over the years (engine changes, canopy fixes, etc..)

    Thanks for that!

    An update on Full Noise from Graeme Frew on Facebook:
    "I apologise for the lack of info over the last few days. #Fullnoise35 has not been particularly cooperative and trying to do everything myself has been a challenge. Yesterday I did in fact declare a Mayday as the oil pressure had dropped off. It was precautionary and good practice. Luckily the forces are finally gathering and Jay JEM Aviation Ltd will get her licked into shape."

    Also, this happened today!

    Quite a lot of action today, attached some photos from the first unlimited flights in the afternoon.

    Best regards,
