"Our Little Friends" Warbirds Hangar Dance, Hardwick, Norfolk - 9th July 2016

For the first time in a couple of years we're back at Maurice Mustang's hangar dance, at the home of Janie and Marinell, the P51-D Mustangs. And also for the first time in a couple of years it's not either raining or freezing cold. Bonus. It's also the first time out for the van since its epic six-month layover for a gearbox re-build, and Isobel's work-related massive come up from Saffron Walden to do a spot of Lindy Hop
