I saw you, but the sun was really bad. Was lucky enough to snap this one. I'll try and catch you next time round. :D

That looks like FXN, which is not an Aerobat!! Hopefully, they were not doing too much if it is! I used to fly her in the 70's.

Thank you Mike. My zoom seems to indicate it could be FXN as well. Well, a steep climb and a genuinely near-vertical dive down to around 200-400 feet above the sea, duration around 5-6 seconds, is what caught my attention.
