Maurice Mustang's Open Day, Norfolk - 17th October 2010

It's Maurice's end-of-the-season secret open-day, near Hardwick in the depths of Norfolk. Seeing as we were meant to be down south, but weren't, it was an opportunity too good to miss to take the Boy, Isobel and the van over to get a good close-up of a pair of P-51 Mustangs and other miscellaneous aircraft. DH is there too, to offer cups of tea and a bit of "access all areas" in the pleasant autumn sunshine.
