Little Gransden Air Show 2021

Like so many other shows, 2020 saw the excellent Little Gransden airshow take an enforced break. This followed on from a great run of shows (aside from 2018s washout) that saw the show put on a string of excellent line ups combing lesser seen vintage types and some of the finest UK based warbirds. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/51425685042/in/dateposted/Continue reading Little Gransden Air Show 2021

Aero Legends Battle of Britain Airshow 2021

The 2020 airshow at Headcorn held in September was one of the shining lights of what was largely a subdued year for airshows.

I thought it would be a fitting start to this years series of Advent posts to share this account of a warm Friday in September. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127965535@N04/50658090932/in/photostream/Continue reading Duxford and Mildenhall – 18th September 2020

Aero Legends Headcorn Battle of Britain Airshow 2020

Warbird Tails Looking Back – June at Old Warden
