Coventry gets busy

Postby CameronSys on Fri 18 May 2018, 4:33 pm

The first arrivals for the Midlands Air Festival have taken place, with some of the heavier aircraft unable to use the grass runways at Ragley Hall, basing at Coventry for the weekend. P-51D 'Sharkmouth' and the Strikemaster Display team have already arrived, with more arrivals due this evening and tomorrow.

Having arrived on Monday, the P-51 went for a local:

Very impressive set of images, like them all, although the Vampire tail end is a stunner...
