A selection from an enjoyable day at Old Warden today - the Spitfire XIV and Jet Provost T3A were my particular highlights, but there were many other excellent displays too...

very nice, I only started on my photos late last evening so will hopefully finish them today or tomorrow and then post some of them.

I agree that it was mainly a good show but I'm surprised you managed a photo of the Chipmunk - that was so high doing aerobatics while others were flying past below.
The other disappointment was the Spitfire Vb - I think he was doing topsides for the people in the garden centre, every pass was a belly side curving round the house and hangars on the far side just back and forth on the same track a few times. did he get his orientation wrong?

I didn't get to see the Dove, it broke something before it got as far as me!

Thankyou Andy - yes the Chipmunk was quite high (and the Provost for most of its display too - and then I didn't do a great job of catching it when it was doing its lower passes).

Agree with you on the Spitfire Vb - I certainly breathed a sigh of relief when the Spitfire XIV came round for the first of its topside passes.

By the time I saw the Dove on its take-off run (from the cross-runway) it looked quite clear it wasn't going to be taking off and subsequently parked up to one side on the grass.
