Shuttleworth June Flying Day
The weatherman is fallible you know. For pretty much the entire week leading up to the show the good old Met Man said it would be like the second coming of Noah, then as if by magic the night before the show the forecast changed to all day cloudy.
Wrong again. What we got was a bit of everything, sunny first thing, followed by low cloud then a shower and then almost clear blue skies. I take all the credit because I went without hat (that you to the Chief Pilot for lending me his) or Sunscreen. You can all thank me later but for now, here are some photos of the day.
Parky, snotting the airfield, again. well done that man!
The display debut of Peter Teichman’s P-40M “Lulu-Belle” in its new colours. I’m rather glad he didnt chose a Sharkmouth scheme (even if I do really like the 112Sqn desert colours). I first saw this design in the Arco-Aircam Sharkmouth volume. It looks fantastic.
And then alas I had to leave. The Avro Triplane was flown in wonderful light later in the evening when the wind had died down enough.
Next up is the big one, The Shuttleworth Military Pageant on June 30th.
