Tall ships (porthole)

(no subject)

Today's random surprise while in Chichester (again) was several flypasts. First was a set of 22 planes that looked similar to Spitfires, flying in various rough groups of 3 or 4. They flew by somewhere south of Chichester, then presumably went and circled round somewhere because they then went past about 4 more times.

Then, a few moments later, a flight? squadron? of 9 jets flying in a very tight diamond formation came roaring over, much closer than the earlier piston-driven planes were.

So last week was the Polish military attaché, this week was a major military flypast. Perhaps I should go to Chichester again next weekend to see what random event is next!
