New Look Spitfires – Non RAF Schemes Revival

As the worldwide population of airworthy Spitfires has continued to grow at an impressive rate over the past few years, there has been a certain familiarity about the schemes the aircraft are finished in.

Little Gransden Air Show 2021

Like so many other shows, 2020 saw the excellent Little Gransden airshow take an enforced break.

Shuttleworth Collection Season Premiere – 2nd May 2021

Once again in these uncertain times, it was down to Old Warden to provide the first show of the season. The big difference this year was that the season got underway on the traditional first weekend of the season, rather than mid July as in 2020. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/51165221071/in/photostream/ The wonderful Bristol F2b in new colours.
