That's a great link Tony. 

That last take off was a bit hairy to say the least. 

Thanks for sharing it.

I think they did that on purpose. 'Crazy Flying'. Oh no, someone's stolen the Tutor! Look out he's going to crash!

 

Happy Day's.

That would explain it. Mind you, should have seen me in a Piper Warrior in a cross wind!!!

K7849 was 66 Sqn, crashed Royston in November 1937, Midair collision. Note only one appears to have wing markings.

Unfortunately, the video is only playable for those who live in the UK. Us old colonials have been denied access.

Chris you are not alone!  Since the flap over "personal protection " on Facebook here I have no access to many of the sites I used to visit daily. These include Flightglobal and Hannants of all sites.

I was able to watch it despite being outside the UK. Maybe they make an exception for Ireland?

 

The last take off was probably crazy flying and they seemed to have a very relaxed attitude to airshow safety. 

 

Great find Tony. Would that we could go back in time for an afternoon to see the real thing! Golden era indeed.

Glad you like it folks and sorry for those outside the UK,..... I didn`t realise that there was a block.

 

As others have said,...... Crazy Flying was a common airday act for the inter war RAF,........ but he is certainly going for it in that Tutor isn`t he!!! 

 

Cheers for the info re the Gauntlet John,...... I did notice the wing markings too.

 

All the best

                  Tony
