Newark's RAF Parade

A change in your regular programming here, as I present pictures of the RAF commemorative parade in Newark yesterday, complete with proud veterans, marching band, and a spitfire.

It was certainly a glorious day for it, and there was a good turn out of folk watching. The RAF regimental band is certainly a very powerful entity indeed!

Research reveals that the spitfire displaying was MK356, a mark IX, who's history can be seen here
