No headsup but I went to switch off the box, as SWMBO went out, after lunch. Just in time, I spotted BBC1 was covering today's anniversary flypast. Why oh why didn't I switch off the cringemaking embarrassingly amateurish BBC commentary. Not many know that in WW I the Sopwith Pup was operated at 20,000', without oxygen. Etc etc.

The pictures were great and the blackening sky a dramatic back drop.
