I took the wife and the young Padawan to Duxford on Sunday to take advantage of the fine spring weather that has finally arrived in time for the Bank Holiday weekend. I've been to Duxford dozens of times (it's less than an hour from where I live) and as Friends of the Museum we got in for free. There was a classic car rally on the site, but to be honest if its not painted green and packing a couple of MG's and a Gun I'm not that interested! I didn't take many pictures (I've posts lots on BLMA over the years here, here and here) but here's a few from this visit.

I'll be back at Duxford in mid June for a military vehicle rally and no doubt again later in the year for an Air Show or two.
