The Road out of “Warbird Lockdown” Summer 2020

As those of us in the South East head back into what is seemingly Lockdown 3 (or is Lockdown 2 still....) I noticed I'd never really shared many posts or photos from the transition out of Lockdown 1 back in June/July as we saw the world come back to life a little. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50740373531/in/dateposted/ Most of … Continue reading The Road out of “Warbird Lockdown” Summer 2020

Airshow Moments 2020 – Tailchasing “Daks” over Kent

As one of the few airshows to go ahead in 2020 it shouldn't come as a surprise that yet another airshow moment this year comes from Headcorn. I'll try to resist mentioning the horrendous weather as much in this one! https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50410660358/in/album-72157716228636186/ 2019 was, amongst other things very much the year of the Dakota.

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

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

Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow 2018

After a low-key event in 2017, 2018 saw Headcorn return as a contender on the display circuit with a busy flying programme across the weekend of 30th June and 1st July. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/32327960818/in/photostream/ Unsurprisingly, given the hosts of the event, the flying was largely made up of Aero Legends' machines. The company now boasts an ever … Continue reading Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow 2018
