Shuttleworth Family Airshow Aug 4 2019

Post by johnr »

A very drab sort of day that makes photographers wonder why they bother. It was too windy for the Edwardians and the Camel to close the show.
Lots of visiting a/c so I have concentrated on those.

The show started with a gaggle of gliders to celebrate 90 years of the British Gliding Association

Valiant attempt to rescue something from the day Sir. Looking at the List & the weather I remain devoid of guilt for ducking this one! :biggrin:

I also gave this one a miss, but am sorry I missed both the DH9 and the Do28 flying. Oh well, another time!

You've a good collection of shots from what looks like a bit of grim day for photography :clap: :clap:

Indeed.

The two aerobatic gliders were superb and it was great to see the DH9. Unless they were very high on your wish list, you made the right decision.
