This popped into my feed the other day;

"Spitfire trio and 100 vintage aircraft to fly over the Island for the first Mary Ellis Day"

One hundred vintage aircraft will take to the skies over the Isle of Wight in May ­— to celebrate the life of Second World War pilot Mary Ellis — who died in 2018.

Anyone going?? The Vintage Aircraft Club's definition of a 'vintage' aircraft would appear to be any type which had its first flight 40 or more years previously, so aside from Cirrus owners, that's most of you lot then :lol:
