Duxford American Airshow (PIC HEAVY)


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share some shots of the Duxford show from this past weekend. I know there have been plenty of negative comments about the show, but I can say I enjoyed it. Weather wasn't great, but not a lot we can do about that. Was great to see the Osprey, although she didn't fly, getting to go inside more than made up for that.

Never seen a Bronco in the air before, so that was another highlight. Also great to see both the Huey and Loach, both of which were veterans of the Vietnam conflict.

Hope you like the pics ( there are a few more in the album page here )

Cheers, Andrew.

All I can find listed for the Zero is that it's operated by Aeroretro. It certainly brought back memories of old West Malling "Great Warbirds" displays, when Gary Numan used to bring his Zero along. :)

Very nice pics. Quite like the formations. Whose Buchon/ID?? And am I right in detecting in one of the Bronco on the ground pics having a Navion tail just peeking into view???

Thanks for sharing these - love the Bronco and Skyvan formation, and I have seen some of the comments elsewhere but it looked like it was well worth attending to me,

cheers

Not familiar with a Navion, to be honest. Would it be this?.

Looks like very challenging conditions, great work.

Not sure about the black spinner on the '109 though.............
