Abingdon (Air & Country Show) – Saturday 11th September 2021 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

A good day was spent with Gill and Jet at the 20th Abingdon Air & Country Show which is my local show and my first air show since the March 2020 lock-down. It was well attended by the public who had plenty of other things to look at other than aircraft and the three hour air display was varied and interesting.
