Shuttleworth Uncovered 2013 (non-DSLR) - updated

Postby Hatstand on Mon 23 Sep 2013, 6:54 pm

Another lovely afternoon whiled away at Old Warden yesterday, and it was finally calm enough to let the WW1 types and Edwardians take to the air - plus a few others that don't get out much. It was great to wander around the planes parked out on the paddock too, and stick my nose right in them :-D Lots of nice flying displays, and some jolly impressive WW1 scale-model formation flying by The Dawn Patrol.

There was a bit of drama when the Gladiator landed after its display... the pilot seemed to struggle keeping it straight after touch down, some skidding and ground-loopery followed (starboard wing appeared to touch the ground) - but recovered safely, and I couldn't see any damage to the wing from where I was.

Since I can't make it to their autumn show, this was my last Old Warden show for this year - a nice finale for me!

1. RC Scale model, flown by The Dawn Patrol

2. Sea Hurricane - the repair work for the recent bird strike is no longer bare metal, it's been painted now - good as new...

A great set of photos :clap: . I particularly like the first Sea Hurricane shot - mine were all soft for some reason :sad:

Thanks for posting.

Another excellent set and great work with the slow shutter speeds. :clap:
How good do the Edwardians look in that early evening light.
Great to see a shot of one of the models. I couldn't believe how detailed they were - absolutely superb.

Thanks for the comments! Here's a few from the ground displays. I managed plenty of "uncluttered" shots, despite arriving "late" at about 9:45 and wandering around at a leisurely pace after that. Patience is a virtue... ;-D

25. Demon, Hind, Gladiator
Image

26. Gladiator
Image

27. Hind
Image

28. Demon
Image

29. Ermm... dunno...
Image

30. Dragon Rapide
Image

31. Sopwith Triplane. I only just found out what these little propellers are for, on rotary-engined planes... They're air pumps to keep the fuel tank pressurised, to maintain flow during in-flight manouevres.
Image

32. Deperdussin
Image

33. Half-track and Jeep
Image

34. Excellent moustache...
Image

35. Storch. Gotta love a cockpit that has bicycle-chain hand-cranks in it...
Image

36. Parnell Elf
