BoB Air Show - Runners and Riders

Postby ArthurG on Thu 28 Sep 2017, 4:49 pm

I wonder if anyone out there has a list, or even a few notes that they could share, of who flew what on Sunday 24th at Duxford. I was a bit far from the PA and missed a lot of the commentary but would still like to caption some of my pictures.
Thanks in advance for any help and a big thank you to all the pilots who made it such a great show at the weekend.

This is what I have at the moment and I think are correct:
Hurricane P3700 - Dave Harvey
Hurricane BE505 - Peter Teichman
Hurricane P3717 - Stuart Goldspink
Hurricane P2921 - Clive Denney
Hurricane P2902 - Mark Levy
Sea Hurricane Z7015 - Paul Stone
Blenheim - John Romain
Gladiator - Rob Millinship

BBMF Hurricane - Stu Smiley
Curtiss P-40C - Pete Kynsey

Fury - Richard Grace
Corsair - Alan Wade

Spitfire EP120 - Pete Kynsey
Spitfire BM597 - Charlie Brown

It'll be Kenneth Aarkvisla in the MiG, and probably Jyri Mattila in the other Vampire.

Thanks very much everyone for this info.
It might be an idea to do something like this on a more regular basis next season, in the absence of programme notes.
I hope I am not alone in thinking that the pilots should be acknowledged a bit more than they currently are.

I always like to know who flew what at a display, I am often surprised at those who say 'who cares, it is all about the machine'. I disagree, there are skilled people in the machines, and they deserve credit.

I believe Will Greenwood flew one of the Yak-3M’s (the one in grey camo).

(I think I met him once, years ago, in a bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, of all places. He said he was looking for a book on the Bücker Bestmann, because he’d just bought one!)
