A heavy from the 'Mighty Hundredth'
The Mildenhall Air Fete, Mildenhall, Suffolk - 29th May 1994
Janet and Tony pick Nosher up for a day out at the Mildenhall Air Fete, hosted on the USAF air base. Highlights include the B52 strategic bomber (Mildenhall is one of the few runways long enough to host these) and a group of "warbirds" - Spitfires and Mustangs.
