The More Things Change….2020’s Moving Warbirds

One thing that didn't change, despite everything else that has been going around the world, is the ever-present movement of warbirds changing hands and locations around the world. Throughout the year there were various announcements as familiar favourites and some newly restored machines changed hands and moved to a new base, or even country. Whilst … Continue reading The More Things Change….2020’s Moving Warbirds

Airshow Moments 2020 – Battle of Britain Sequence at Headcorn

The Aero Legends shows at Headcorn have built up a great reputation for putting on Duxford-like warbird set pieces over the last five years. 2020 could have easily been a far more subdued version of the formula but actually saw one of the most memorable routines. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50411511987/in/album-72157716228636186/ The Saturday and Sunday of the show saw … Continue reading Airshow Moments 2020 – Battle of Britain Sequence at Headcorn

Duxford Showcase Day – 10th October 2020

In a year that managed to deliver a handful of great flying displays, Duxford managed to deliver one more treat for enthusiasts. The Imperial War Museum hosted three "showcase days" this year, which allow visitors to enjoy an hour or two of based aircraft displaying as part of a normal museum day. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50666186087/in/dateposted/ The early … Continue reading Duxford Showcase Day – 10th October 2020

Aero Legends Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow 2020

The 2020 airshow season has certainly been one like no other in a year that in general has been much the same. It is a strange and uncertain time and having some elements of normality have helped make getting through this difficult year easier. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50416371132/in/photostream/ So far this season we have enjoyed inventive events such … Continue reading Aero Legends Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow 2020

Airshow Moments 2019 10 – Ultimate Fighters Debut

This years Flying Legends brought a number of season highlight but it was the mid-point of the show that brought the real high point for many and an act thoroughly deserving of an airshow moments post, Ultimate Fighters. Since the announcement and associated trailer went live early in the year, there had been high anticipation … Continue reading Airshow Moments 2019 10 – Ultimate Fighters Debut

Airshow Moments 2019 1 – “White 9” and “Nellie B” Duo over Germany

If I had to pick two favourite warbirds of recent years, I'd be pretty sure that Buchon "White 9" and P-47 Thunderbolt "Nellie B" would come out on top. They both represent great examples of their types and under the care of Air Leasing are always flown in incredible style. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/48755176783/in/album-72157710902250778/ 2019 saw both aircraft … Continue reading Airshow Moments 2019 1 – “White 9” and “Nellie B” Duo over Germany

Hahnweide Oldtimer 2019 14/15th September

I've done some pretty silly things to enjoy an airshow in the past. Long drives, hours spent in the rain/cold and various late nights immediately spring to mind. But as the alarm went off at 3:30am on the Saturday of this particular show, I did wonder if I might have finally overdone it! https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/48755512021/in/dateposted/ That … Continue reading Hahnweide Oldtimer 2019 14/15th September
