Airshow Moments 2015 #16 – LuLu Belle’s Return

Amongst the excitement and fanfare of a number of new aircraft on the season, along with old favourites leaving the skies, this year also saw the return of an old favourite.

Peter Teichman’s P-40M “LuLu Belle” returned to the display circuit for the first time since 2013. It was a welcome sight to see the P-40 performing at a number of shows over the season being flown in a typically exuberant and graceful display.

The first display for this classic fighter after a season out for an engine change amongst other work, was Biggin Hill in June. Pictures below also cover appearances at Old Warden and Dunsfold.
