Duxford Summer Air Show July 24th 2021 (second batch added 25/07/21)


Recommended Posts

Hello again

 

I had a wonderful time at Duxford today. There were a few showers in the morning, but the threatened thunder storms didn't materialise and the sun even made an appearance!

 

Here are a few favourites and I will post more if anyone is interested.

Excellent pics again, very nicely done, especially the Mustangs! Nice to see a good selection of aircrafy, the Typhoon looks particularly striking. More pictures please Sir!

Yes,please to more pics.  Nice variety of types on display. A bit like old times.  Were those notorious restrictions still applied or did they relax them??

Good to see photos of the show itself.  Typhoon shot is very good indeed.  Really like the Thunderbolt and Mustang formations.

Thanks for posting.

A cracking day out Leigh with some fabulous shots for your efforts. Unlike some commentators though I personally think the 2021 Typhoon scheme is garish in the extreme! Whatever happened to good taste and British understatement!

Thanks for the kind words Parabat. The Typhoon is growing on me! I will aim to post some more pictures this evening.

Thanks Paul. I had an excellent day and the smaller crowd made for a more relaxing experience! That size crowd is probably not sustainable in terms of income moving forward, though. The original restrictions were relaxed when lockdown was eased on July 27th, allowing free movement across the whole site. No one checked my vaccination status, despite it being a condition of entry.

I like that Typhoon scheme. Hope someone releases a decal set soon.

 It's a bit of a Marmite scheme, but I'm sure one of the decal companies will oblige!

Thanks for the kind words Colin. The US fighters with the B-17 were my favourite, or was it the three Spitfire MkIa beauties.....

Thanks Mark. I'm think the "Global Britain" Voyager and A321 probably paved the way for the less than subtle Typhoon scheme!

  • Alpha Delta 210 changed the title to Duxford Summer Air Show July 24th 2021 (second batch added 25/07/21)

Some quite incredible shots there in this next installment. I particularly like the b/w Thunderbolt pic, and Sally B banking away from the 'little friends'. Top notch, great work.

Thanks very much, Parabat. You picked two of my favourites as well!
