Shuttleworth's Family Airshow

Shuttleworth's Family Airshow

Postby Thommo95 on Sat 11 Aug 2018, 5:13 pm

Another Sunday and another airshow at Old Warden. The show catered for it's audience with a lot of family entertainment acts but on the back of decent forecast and the chance to see the Miles Hawk Speed Six alongside the collection\s other 2 air racers I headed along to Old Warden. Therefore it was frustrating to see the Comet still in the hangar and a bank of cloud rolling over the airfield as the display started at 2PM, I am still to shoot the comet in decent light! Also frustrating and a common occurrence at Old Warden this year is the continued opening of the show by the collections Sea Hurricane and Spitfire in the harshest of the light.

The show will not go down as a classic but the Miles Hawk Speed Six, Beech 18 and Mew Gull displays were vintage shuttleworth, the Mew Gull in particular utilising the bend to its full potential lining up on the cross runway and dropping the wing at the tower in a series of sweeping topside passes. :clap:

As the show ended the blanket of thin cloud that had formed over Old Warden passed and the departing visitors left to stunning evening weather. The Miles Hawk Speed Six also went up again and taxied back in some superb light.

On with the images (in order taken), I hope you like them,

Nick

Very good! That Expeditor is getting about a bit, rapidly becoming one of my favourites on the current airshow scene. :up:
