Shuttleworth Vintage Show, 05/09/2021

Usually I just go to Shuttleworth on my own and concentrate on the aviation. For this one I took the family and let the aircraft play second fiddle to open-top bus rides, vintage carousel rides and playing in the chidren's play area. Still managed to come away with a fair few aircraft shots though, ...

Chipmunk 75th Anniversary @ Old Warden, 22/05/21

Yesterday Old Warden hosted a fly-in to mark the 75th anniversary of the first flight of the de Havilland DHC-1 Chipmunk. The weather wasn't as good as it was for the 70th anniversary, but there was still a good turnout. I believe the final figure was 34 attending Chipmunks, including Shuttleworth's...

Re: SPOTM May 2021 GROUNDED

I may as well kick things off with my recent photo of G-AOVS. I think this is as unlikely to fly again as you can get!
