UPDATED Screechy @ Hahnweide 'From Dawn till Dusk'

Postby Screechy on Sun 09 Oct 2016, 7:27 pm

Last month a few hardy UKARians headed off to the land of the sausage. The sun was blistering and unfortunately in your face most of the day and there were early starts and late nights. Well worth popping my Hahnweide cherry.

1. You could get on base amongst the aircraft from 6.30 am
Image

2. Stearman
Image

3. Europes version of Oshkosh, there were 200+ aircraft in attendance
Image

4. P-51 Louisiana Kid
Image

5. The Kid goes up
Image

6. Ahhh the chrome
Image

7. Cubbies
Image

8. On the wings of a Dove
Image

9. Crop dusting
Image

10. Love to see this at Old Warden
Image

11. Me-262 displayed on Saturday and Sunday, shame it was into the sun
Image

12. Surely this wasn't included on the original :)
Image

13. I love a Flammont, especially one that is marauding as a Marauder... maybe
Image

14. Taxiing back home
Image

15. Yak 3 & Spitfire
Image

16. There were 7 AN2's at Hahnweide. These 3 went up for a play on Friday
Image

17. THAT Stearman again, lovely
Image

18. Pleasure flights took part throughout the show on a pair of AN2's and a JU52
Image

19. Gotta love a Bronco
Image

20. The Dri Decker displays were particularly outrageous
Image

21. Good angles, nice and close too
Image

22. The Kid comes home after displaying on Sunday
Image

23. Mmmmm smokey Yak
Image

24. The La Ferte Alais based Skyraider was one of the star performers
Image

25. The runway got pretty dusty due to the intense heat throughout the show
Image

26. Coming home
Image

27. The silver scheme is very fetching but i wish i'd caught this Hurricane in it's Finnish scheme
Image

28. Sneaking in after the show ended on the Sunday was a surprise arrival of the Red Bull P-38
Image

29. Some of the best flying we saw was ultimately missed by most
Image

30. The Kid preparing to fly home
Image

31. Seeing the Dri Decker go up at the end of the day was quite special
Image

32. Enough said
Image

33. as was the Bleriot
Image

34. Skyraider sunset
Image

35. As the sun set, up went the Red Bull gliding team
Image

36. Always enjoyable
Image

37. The nightshoot was very hit and miss (more miss than hit) with the lighting constantly changing colours.. but beggars can't be choosers
Image

Probably a few too many pics there but I think they are pretty representative of the show. Thanks for looking and if you've always considered this show one that you want to go to but haven't as yet made it out there then I hope this helps you get your ass in gear and get out there for the next one. Like all these shows, you just never know if you will see the like of them again.

Not that far from Stuttgart, maybe 30 mins although we went via Frankfurt so we could take in some museums en route (hermeskiel, speyer and sinsheim)

Some really nice shots in there capturing the spirit of the place brilliantly. Almost certainly Europe's best vintage aviation event.

The 'BMW' Klemm prop is all to do with LEDs being attuned to the prop RPM (via a chip, so the logo appears exactly the same regardless of RPM), or so the crew explained at Goodwood a few years back. Personally, I think it's the Force.

Lovely set from a great trip Steve. A unique show in many respects and one I'd return to, especially with the knowledge gained from our first visit.

Thanks Elliott, was a great venue and great weather. The sun position did make photography pretty difficult at times so I missed out on quite a few of the flying shots but I think you are right in that it pretty much blows similar shows out the water with the sheer amount and diversity of aircraft involved.

Such a friendly show too and so relaxed. Other shows could certainly take note of the way they use the evening light. Just because it has gone 6-7 there's no need to sling everyone off site, make it more of a social thing.

What a great selection of aircraft that attended! Would love to attend but, alas, our Europe trip in 2017 ends the month before the airshow. :sad:

I would not be too concerned about posting "too many photos".... too many are never enough. :wink: Thanks for sharing.
Cheers,

This show has generally been bi annual anyway i believe, i wouldn't expect to see it again until after England have been embarrassed again at the World Cup in Russia.

From first thing friday when we got picked up in a beautiful old convertable Buick and delivered to the base by a kindly soul who was part of the show to last thing on the sunday evening when we were given free sausages and cakes etc it was quite thte experience, not only aviationwise but also socially as well.

Great show, great participation and also a great area of the world.

Lots to enjoy here but that Bleriot is superb.
He's done another book. You're joking.

Cheers, well there was a lot to see and enjoy everywhere you looked at Hahnweide.. so here's a few more of the sights and some different airframes too..

38. Love a floater
Image

39. Had only ever seen these in museums previously
Image

40. At 7am on a sunny but slightly misty morning the light is somewhat photogenic
Image

41. Ditto
Image

42. Did mange a few flying shots during the day but the sun didn't make life easy
Image

43. So much chrome everywhere, never a bad thing
Image

44. Gliders play a bit of a filler role at Hahnweide but they do it well
Image

45. Another decent departure whilst the queue to fly home grows on Sunday
Image

46. Yak attack
Image

47. A new one on me, this hi tech Grob
Image

48. The Bleriot and the Dri Dekker were real star performers whenever they went up, helped by fantastic weather and scenery
Image

49. That sneaky Red Bull Corsair

A few airports you can fly into, Stuttgart closest but we did Frankfurt so that we could hit a few museums on the way down. Don't think it'll be on next year, usually bi annual

Looking forward to seeing the rest then! Does look rather a busy event. Are the naughty tracks outside too distant/low to get around the sun issues?

There are naughty fields or woods actually here but your field of view is pretty limited, there are opportunities on the approach but they aren't ideal either
