From the amount of polishing that goes on just before take off, I'm not sure that the pilots understand the term "mock".

According to WAHT, the Snipe and Albatros will be taking part, though whether that's static or flying isn't clear.

Hm. I may have to pop along, if there's a chance the Albatros and Snipe might be flying...
And the Pup, Comet, Mew Gull etc etc would be gavy

Hangar 11's P-40 dropped off the list. Not sure it's been back in the air since it made Biggin and Cosford in June...?

After the last evening show, it'll be nice to see the Snipe fly in daylight, rather than 10 minutes after sunset...

Are the snipe and the albatros permanently at Shuttleworth now? Or is it going to be like last time where they were there for a few shows then stuck in some museum (such a pointless waste of such beautiful aircraft)?

Going to live at Stow Maries or Bicester (I think) and be kept flyable.

I believe they're for the WW1 Aviation Heritage Trust and to be kept flying, as per the Be2c pair from last year.

Did it make it?

I haven't seen the P-40 since the colour scheme reveal in 2013.

Wonder why it's been scrubbed for next week.

Thanks
what are the chances of seeing them at Shuttleworth again then? Is this going to be the last chance? Or?
Still debating whether to go to this show or not, these pair are the only reason that I would go tbh

I don't know. I don't recall the Be2 pair having returned since the two shows they did at Old Warden last summer (anyone able to verify?), so I couldn't give you an answer.

There should be chances to see them at Bicester/Stow Maries though I would imagine - the Albatros, Snipe and Be2s are down to appear at the latter for a fly-in event in August.

Think at least one of the Be2s was due at the July Pagent, but scrubbed due to the weather.

I've looked through my resources for the colour scheme of the Albatros but cannot find a reference. Can anyone tell me who flew the original aeroplane in WWI and offer information on his service history? The commentator didn't give the info but then he kept on referring to the type as the DeeVee and not the DeeFive!

Also, can anyone confirm that the RAFM example and the aircraft flown on Sunday have the same type of engine? I've checked with the soundtracks on my videos and they sound very different.

I can now answer the question in the first paragraph! Uffz Paul Baumer 1917.

See http://www.kingandcountry.com/albatros- ... -2895.html

and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_B%C3%A4umer

Still like to know about the engine though.
