Superb images in exceptionally clear fine weather for here in the UK. Great content for a relatively small show too. Well done! :slight_smile:

Excellent set all around, but especially all the Lysander images!

Excellent! You scored the trifecta; weather, aircraft and you went home with some fab images.
Cheers,

Loving the Lysander and the Lanc, Cosby is always a good day out and a little bit off the radar compared to other shows

Drop dead gorgeous, all of them. Most envious of your technique and not being able to be there.

Ah you must have been right by me Paul, we should have said hello.

Lovely images, and now I'll know what mine could/should look like when I go through them.

The Victory Show is a gem of an event, and I mean the whole thing as opposed to just the flying display which is only a part of it, as unique as it is.

Superb set of images. Always an excellent event. Just curious tho, why does the Lancaster fly with the top hatches open? Is it a ventilation thing or a saftey requirement?

Thanks for all the nice comments. Lanc was possibly for ventilation as it was a warm day?

Thats a pity Nige, had Geoff with me as well!

As you say a great event all round, a few vehicles positioning for the battle. Sorry I don't know what they all are.

Probably not the authentic way of entering the battle zone?

Probably needed for the previous tank?

Fantastic shots mate, that Lysander in the evening light looks amazing. Whole show does to be fair.
