Yet another day when the weather threatened to do its worst, but once again held off for 655 to do her stuff. As those who attended will have seen, the repaint is well in progress with the starboard wing, starboard mid fuselage and rear fuselage all completed and primer coat visible on parts of the port wing. I wish I had a better picture to show you but unfortunately I messed up the exposure on the side-on shots! Hopefully the weather will improve so that more of the job can be finished before the winter takes hold. Anyway, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves...
