Shuttleworth Military Airshow 2019

Postby Hagar » Tue Jul 09, 2019 12:23 pm

I travelled up to Old Warden last Sunday for my first air show of the year. I'd arranged to meet an old friend who I hadn't seen for 20 years.
It was a most enjoyable day out with decent weather & good company. 8-)

Here's some pics of just some of the aircraft we saw. A selection of new ones mixed with old favourites. These are the WWII types.

This P-47D opened the show with a terrific display. A long time since I've seen one.

Image

One of my personal favourites. The Collection's Gloster Gladiator.
Image

The good old B-17G Sally B. I believe she's now the only airworthy example in Europe.
Image

The Collection's recently completely rebuilt Spitfire VC, back in its original clipped wing configuration.
Image

Another of my favourites. The Miles Maggie.
Image

This Fw 44 Stieglitz gave a spirited display. There were two more on the airfield.
Image

Now for the special finale. No less than 7 Hawker Hurricanes in the air. A rare sight indeed! :shock:

First up, the Collection's Sea Hurricane.
Image

Dunkirk veteran P2902 in early wartime markings.
Image

These two BoB veterans are also based here at OW.
Image

Image

The next pair are based at Duxford. HAC's Mk XIIa P3700
Image

V7497 operated by ARCo
Image

PZ865 "The Last of the Many" The last Hurricane built now owned & operated by the BBMF.
Image

The whole airfield fell silent for this rare moment. What a beautiful sight & sound!
Image

Image

More to come including the WWI types.

Great shots, I particularly like the Gladiator and Hurricane shots not sure I like clipped wing Spitfire but at least it's not a two seater.

Thanks for all the comments. :)

Indeed! A very rare sight. According to the airshow commentator this was the largest flight of Hurricanes since 1946. :shock:
There should have been 8 but the other BBMF example couldn't make it for some reason.

I found this video to give you a good idea of what it was like to be there. 8-)

Nice video clip and it hasn't been ruined by music.
