D-Day Invasion at Shuttleworth

Post by Seamus » Thu Jun 06, 2019 6:56 am

Morning all,

Here's a selection of images from a superb weekend that kicked off with the tremendous Flying Festival at Old Warden and in particular it's seven very special visitors. What an absolute treat to get to see these wonderful aeroplanes up close before departing during the show, one of the season defining moments I'm sure and an awesome bonus ahead of a very good day at Duxford the following day.

I'll start with the stars of the show, more to follow from the other displays when I get round to editing them.

I also did Old Warden on the Saturday.

Huge thanks to whom it was that posted on FC that seven Daks will be in attendance.

Nice set. Quite a coup by the Shuttleworth which must have considerably increased the attendance.
