RETROPOLIS Easter2019 #1 picture-heavy

Our first real outing this year, with the "new" Essex engine now settled in and purring nicely, was to visit the Retropolis salon at Besançon - so named because it takes place at the Micropolis exhibition centre.

French air-shows anyone?

French air-shows anyone?

This is intended for the French contingent (so he writes it in English!) - are any of you interested in visiting the 'Temps d'Helices' at La Ferté Alais, June 8-9 ; or the military air-show Legend Paris-Villaroche 7-8 September - in your Scimitars, of course? :)
