A Picture Postcard from Old Warden "Military Day"

Recommended Posts

I have said it once, I have said it many times, Old Warden is my favourite Airshow venue, getting close up and personal with aircraft in a delightful picnic setting. The highlights of this visit was the 7 Hurricane formation, the Steiglitz and amazingly for me, the Jordanian Falcons. On the Falcons I have seen them at various venues in the last 3 years but I have never ever taken a photo of their aircraft or performances before. Why? well they are small and at these other venues fly too high and too far from the crowd line to take a decent shot.. Old Warden however, different story, I'll let the pictures do the talking with a small sample, go to my photostream for lots more fine studies of some beautiful flying machinery, enjoy

cheers

Excellent views and photography Wally, with some nice ideas on paintwork for models.  I am sure that @rio will enjoy those Hurricane views.

 

cheers,

I hadn't picked the extra one in the last two formation shots, the SEA one being missing from the earlier two. That just makes me that little bit more envious. :)
