Re: Flying Legends 13.7.19

That's a nice set, Ian and I truly admire your slow shutter speed panning skills. Thanks Alpha I share your misgivings about the event. It always struck me as an event for giving the pilots a good time but with little regard to the photographic opportunities. Do they not notice all those all along ...

Flying Legends 13.7.19

Hi All, I decided to do just one day at Legends based upon the line up this year. I think enough has been said about the show this year, re. Mustangs leaving before the show, line up etc, so I wont add too much. I only really attended in order to see the DH.9, but alas she went tech on Saturday, so ...

Shuttleworth's Military Pageant - 7.7.19

Hi all, Once again I visited Shuttleworth for my favourite show of the year, the Military Pageant. Despite the weather forecast the day ended on a high as far as the weather was concerned (best I have had at an airshow this year). As for the flying, it was simply fantastic, 7 Hurricanes flying past ...

Another Daks over Duxford *UPDATED*

Hi All, I decided to do both days at Duxford for the 'Daks over Duxford' event. The Tuesday was a little disappointing due to the weather, and its stopping the para drop, however it was still great to witness the Daks. In contrast, Wednesday was a much better day, despite the delays with the departu...

Shuttleworth's Flying Festival - 2.6.19

Hi All, I paid another visit to the Shuttleworth collection for their new 'flying festival' airshow. With the late addition of the promised 9 Daks (which became 7), this turned out o be a great show, and a day I won't forget. Seeing 7 Daks streaming out of the grass strip at OW really was a great si...

Re: Vintage Evening at Duxford - 22nd June 2019

This does sound like it could be a great event, really looking forward to seeing the DH.9. Hope the weather holds out and we get some lovely golden light for photos.

Does anyone know if you are only allowed on site at 6.30 for the event, or allowed on for the day and then stay for the evening show?

Rather special Shuttleworth evening show 18.5.19

Hi All, Despite the weather Shuttleworth's first evening show of the year turned out to be brilliant, just by the shear quality of the line up and flying on display. Highlights were the debut display of ARCo's Lysander (flying with the home example), the four ship of sea hurricane and 3 spitfires, N...

Hi all, I started this year's season back where the last ended, at Old Warden. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as generous as last year's, and ARCo's Lysander wasn't able to make it, but a good host of visitors and the strength of the Shuttleworth's own collection still made for a great show. Thoug...

Re: Shuttleworth's Race Day - 7.10.18

Thanks jalfrezi. I agree with the type of flying on offer on race day, I think thats why more of my photos are take off/landing shots. Still, as you say, it was a good show. Now just to sit and wait till May next year.

Re: 2019 Show dates

I've always hoped they would put on a Hawker themed show. They have the 2 Cygnets based there, the Demon, Tomtitt, 2 Hurricanes (plus invited others), there are 2 Sea Furies and the Fury II, Fury I, 2 Hawker Nimrods, if a Hunter could be attracted that would be brilliant. In addition the collections...
