Home / 2010's / 20150704 Shuttleworth 31
A chance to see the mighty Vulcan at a local airshow.
- Avro Anson and De Havilland Dragon Rapide
Avro Anson and De Havilland Dragon Rapide flying together were very photogenic.
- BBMF Spitfire
- Bristol Blenheim
Restored after yet another major crash, it is now in Mk. 1 configuration, with a short nose. Much more attractive than the later models.
- Blenheim Closeup
Great to see this flying
- Beautiful Blenheim
Lovely display. The first display of this aircraft following restoration
Not a bad day for photography. Seeing the Blenheim flying was a major reason for making my way here today.
Nothing very sophisticated in my photographs: they are just to help me remember a great day out.
- Blenheim attacking
Not the best aircraft of its time, but I still wouldn't want to face it in anger.
- Prince Charles Chipmunk
Apparently Prince Charles learned to fly in this very aircraft, which is why it has special permission to stay in these colours.
- Fieseler Storch
First time I have seen one of these, although I saw a French Criquet once, at Colerne. CHarming aircraft but apparently very thirsty.
- EON Glider
Seeing this on the ground, I would never believe it was flyable. Yet here it was, with a pilot who is braver than me sitting in it with no more than a lap strap to keep him in.
- Shuttleworth Hawker
The Hawkers at Shuttleworth are beautiful and beautifully maintained. Further, they are beautifully displayed and beautifully flown.
- Hawker Hart
Powerful aircraft for its time. But very, very agile and pretty.
- Hawker Hurricane
This is the Shuttleworth Collections' Sea Hurricane.
Sea Hurricane taking off framed nicely.
- Fully occupied
It's a long time since I've been to an airshow. I was a bit surprised at how many people turned up.
- Photo-recon Spitfire
I found a good place to frame aircraft as they took off. This magnificent Photo-recon Spitfire has a distinctive but accurate colour scheme.
- Piper Cub
Piper Cub spotter, the American equivalent of the Fieseler Storch.
- Provost Poppies
Provost dropping poppies as the show closes.
- Sea Hurricane & Spitfire
A tandem display by the Sea Hurricane and the BBMF Spitfire
- Sea Hurricane
Last Sea Hurricane flying anywhere. Other than provision for a tailhook, I'm not sure what other modifications were made for a life on carriers.
Another rare aircraft, a Supermarine Seafire
- Tiger Moth
I think this is a Tiger Moth.
- Tiger Moth
Slightly better framing makes a significant difference.
- Avro Vulcan
It's a long time since I have seen one of these flying.
- Avro Vulcan
Once heard, never forgotten, the Vulcan Howl.
- Graceful Lady
Vulcan showing off her lines.
- Closeup Vulcan
Can't hope for a better view of a Vulcan than that which Old Warden can give.
- Slow pass
Undercarriage down, but not for landing. Old Warden is a grass strip.
- Vulcan departing
Back home for a cuppa and some TLC, ready for another display.
