Shuttleworth are certainly having a golden year this season, with very well selected visiting aircraft and themes. This weekend’s evening show may have been named Best of British, but it could have just as easily been the “Best of Shuttleworth”.
I’ll be posting a full review of the show later in the week, but these photo posts seem to go down well for the past couple of shows, so here are a few more.
….and as a bonus, heres a few seconds of another highlight of the day, Dodge Bailey running up the Sopwith Snipe’s 230hp Bentley BR-2 for the crowd in the afternoon. It’s not the best piece of footage ever shot but it gives a sense of the power and sound of this rare engine:
More information about the Bentley aero engines can be found in my earlier post on First World War Aero Engines.
