The Jug at OW! 01/07/18

Pretty surreal seeing this beast above the skies at Shuttleworth, and what a display it was too! Saw it in the hands of Stu Goldspink at Duxford, so it was interesting to see Pete Kynsey display it this time. Not going to apologise for the amount of Thunderbolt pictures :grin:

In no particular order:

Great to see the Gladiator back after its forced landing at last year's Fly Navy show.

The WWI aircraft using the cross runway to take off certainly made for a different backdrop to the usual take off shots at OW.

The GWDT's routine at Shuttleworth felt very punchy, and it was actually a very enjoyable display. More so than all the other times I've seen them.

Knife-edge Hurricane pass anyone?

I can't get enough of the Dove :love:

Really ridiculous to have the Lancaster appear four times at Shuttleworth :shock:

Thanks for looking! Will add some more over the next few days :smile:

The images of the Jug are sensational. This aircraft type has eluded me for many years. One day I will catch up with one... I also like your slow s/s images of the early types such as the Bristol Fighter etc.

Superb images Jakub. This was my first airshow of the year having been unable to make any shows until now... it was the Thunderbolt's appearance that convinced me to attend... and glad I did. My photos are not a patch on yours (although I was initially quite pleased with them until I saw yours) ; I think I need to practice a little more to get them sharp (not blaming the equipment)... and I couldn't have been stood far from you although we did move around quite a bit in the afternoon.
It's been several years since attending any show at OW... and it was great to experience its magic once again.
One of mine....

Brilliant! I really wanted to see the Jug, but sadly it was not to be.
