Hunter up and about

Post by Flying Warden » Thu May 14, 2015 3:31 pm

Didn't get there quick enough to get any details but a single seat Hunter was doing circuits as I approached Scampton this afternoon around 3ish :thumbs:
Fly low, Fly fast, watch out for speed cameras.

In the unlikely event that there were two of them up and about it would be ZZ191 which as Scampton33 did two very low and fast passes at Humberside Airport just before 2 o'clock. HTH.

Any one notice that the Hunters seem very scarce this year, have not seen any booked on the Airshow bookings for 2015.

Scampton's Hunters don't do airshows, do they?

Some distant photos of ZZ191 at Humberside if of interest.
