The formation flight that never was . . .

. . . although nicely lined up on the ground, first the Yak 52 (see also picture #18872) engine would not start, then the Chipmunk (see also picture #18871) in which I was seated had a mag drop at the start of the runway, so we had to taxi ignominiously all the way back past the expectant crowd and shut down.
A disappointment for me...
