(ABOVE) Not only Bückers of course - this is the Plumb BGP1a sheltering beneath the wing of the Max Holste Broussard. The Plumb is much younger than its appearance would suggest, a self-build project that was completed in 2015 and which flew for the the first time only last year. (Andy Wood)

(BELOW) Beautiful Auster J1 (Steve Blee)
