Daks over Shuttleworth

Daks over Shuttleworth

Postby LN Strike Eagle on Tue 11 Jun 2019, 8:29 pm

Really annoyed and frustrated when the news broke that seven Dakotas from Duxford would be re-positioning to Shuttleworth for the Flying Festival airshow, as I had prior arrangements in London town and couldn't make the event itself. Fortunately, it soon became clear that the septet were due to arrive on Saturday afternoon, so I didn't have to miss out after all! Happy days.

And a handful from a much smaller scale D-Day event held at North Weald. Sadly the weather wasn't playing ball, but it was interesting chatting to the AeroLegends guys regardless.

What beautiful scenes, expertly captured. Lovely stuff :clap:

This is the one location and/or event that seems to have done justice to aircraft that have come an awful long way to be over here.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

Thanks chaps. This was the only 'event' that I could really make for the Dakotas, and as it turns out I think it looked like probably the best part of the lot..? Monday was a possible, but that was wiped out when I didn't get home from the gig in London until 3:30am on Sunday night/Monday morning. :cuppa:

As it turns out, I don't look at anything else that occurred over the week or so and feel like I missed out on too much - seven Dakotas at Shuttleworth is better than 20 at Duxford IMO, so I'm happy. :biggrin:

The only slight irritation with OW was the late arrival of a Chipmunk just ahead of the Dakotas, inevitably parking right in the middle of my line-of-sight for touchdown shots. Grrr. :mad: :lol:

Fantastic shots, I fully agree with OW being the best the best location for shots, I was there on the Sunday & its was great for photos as we all know OW is. I was never sure on Duxford due to the fact it being tricky inside for photography due to the light, so I was very pleased when the annouced that some of the American Dak's were to attend this... :smile:
