I went both days this year, and as always, the Tank Museum put on a good show.

Surprise flypast by an HC.5 Chinook on the Saturday, my first time seeing a Chinook with 'fat' fuel tanks:

Battle reenactment featuring reenactors portraying a very interesting infantry division, nicknamed 'Red Bulls':

As I went both days, I had the chance to practise some very low shutter speeds, this one is 1/20:

Probably my favourite picture from the weekend, Challenger 2 reversing into smoke cover:

For fans of German armour, this Tankfest may have been slightly disappointing, with Tiger 131 sitting this one out, and the Jagdpanther and StuG being unserviceable for the majority of the weekend:

The StuG did come out into the arena at the end of Sunday before the battle. However it had some trouble reversing into a parking spot and was eventually left there at the end of Tankfest.

Couple more can be found on my Flickr. Thanks for looking!
