Hi Cameron, thanks, a nice flypast over Redditch with that lovely Vampire next I think, I realise the Vamp may not want to get too near Halfpenny Green but would be lovely to see it over this way :biggrin:


Came overhead last month on the way to/from mid Wales! :wink:

Vampire Evening Photoshoot 20th October

Saturday saw the Vampire evening photoshoot at Coventry, in which a small group came to photograph Vampire WZ507 joined by other aircraft as the sun set and the moon rose. At the beginning, WZ507 flew a local sortie as the golden hour began 1. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1928/44587677665_5acad86c...

Re: Vampires evening engine run and photoshoot

WM167 hasn’t flown since 2015, although does remain in very good condition, I’m sure it’ll be kept that way once it leaves Coventry also.

Re: Vampires evening engine run and photoshoot

Meteor NF.11 WM167 will also be part of the photoshoot, alongside the two Vampires.

Weather looking good, plan is for '507 to fly on the afternoon of the 20th.

Re: Vampires evening engine run and photoshoot

The group looking after WZ507 are running the event, including lighting etc.

More aircraft are to be confirmed soon, and at least 507 will run, serviceability permitting.

Vampires evening engine run and photoshoot

Day, dusk and dark photo event with two Vampires at Coventry on 20th October. Vampire T11 WZ507 will, subject to serviceability, start after the sun has set, giving great opportunities to see the characteristic Vampire start-up with flames, at night. The two vampires haven't been seen in public toge...

Long weekend in Poland for the airshow at Radom-Sadków. Day spent out in the sunshine on Skaryszewska for display rehearsals (although on the 25 approach for 'that' morning arrival). Then into the airshow on Saturday for the main event, a great airshow but sadly effected by rain and low cloud on bot...

After seeing how busy the Mach Loop had been over Monday and Tuesday with American movements, I made the journey over this afternoon (rushing after an exam ), and was not dissapointed.

Re: Midlands Air Festival 18th-20th May 2018, Ragley Hall, W

With the sunshine forecast, it looks like its set to be a show of silhouettes, which is a shame given the line-up they've secured. Luckily a good few of the aircraft are operating from Coventry (Cat, Strikemaster, P51 etc)...
