You might have seen it on news reports but Aero Legends organised a poppy drop over the BoB memorial at Capel this morning to coincide with the 11.00 a.m. silence. Flying out of North Weald were Dakota ‘Drag Em Oot’ accompanied by 2 Spitfires. A Harvard cam along for the ride, presumably as a camera ship.

The Dak did a few circuits dropping 750,000 (bio degradable!) poppies and the Spits flew in formation at the start and end. A bright day fortunately although low sun was not helpful for snaps. Extremely well attended, all grass verges within a 20 minute walk of the BoB centre took a bit of a hammering and traffic gridlock ensued when it was all over! Still, very well done and great that it attracted so much support.
