Yeovilton and a Sea Vixen

We had a quick trip down to Yeovilton yesterday to see the sole remaining airworthy de Havilland Sea Vixen doing some practice displays to get it’s display authorisation before the coming weekend. After a cup of possibly the worst coffee I’ve ever had the misfortune to drink we got to see it fly for 20 minutes or so, however it was very hazy, flying at quite a height, and we were shooting towards the sun so the photos were noting special.

After it landed we went for a wander round the Fleet Air Arm Museum, my first visit for what must be 25 years or so. Plenty to look at, but a bit of a maze to walk around and keep your bearings.

Resisting the lure of another coffee, which wasn’t too difficult, we called it a day and headed home again.

    I take my little boys there every 25 years or so! Because he was good I said he could have a badge in the shop. The reply was not printable.
