Chipmunks birthday bash - Shuttleworth 22.5.16

Postby I.Winfield on Mon 23 May 2016, 6:28 pm

Hi all,

I popped along to Shuttleworth yesterday in order to see the mass fly-in to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the first flight of the Chipmunk, what a great 'little' event! It was a fantastic chance to get up close and personal with some charismatic airframes. A great variety of paint schemes on show made for a nice change from the usual, and some fantastic flying in the '70' formation. As for David Gillespies...WOW what a lil stunner she is, looks almost brand new!

Well done to all involved in this event, both on the ground and in the air.

Heres a few shots of the day, in no particular order;

Ian,
I hope you don't mind me asking - your photos are some of the best I've seen from Sunday-Thankyou. I was lucky enough to be in the formation and I've been asked to compile a disc of pictures for the crews that took part as a souvenir. Would you be prepared to share your pictures with me so that I can pass them on to the pilots concerned ? with appropriate credit of course. I can't offer much at this stage other than to share my air-to-air shots with you if you are interested. I'm sure I could get you a copy of the disc as well.I particularly like your shot of WK577 - not that I am biased :)
Kind regards
Dave

There is no money changing hands for the discs, and I will include a rider to the pilots that they are not to be passed on for any gain.

Hi Andy
Thanks very much, yes please -Thats a great set you've posted. I'm biased as I was in WK577 (silver) and the pilot is a mate of mine.
If you are happy to e-mail me at dave.fry@virgin.net we can chat off forum ( that goes for anyone else too ) The Stearman is also based at Oaksey Park with us.
Cheers
Dave
