Like the Danish Alouette

The British Airways "fly yourself" service never really took off.

They are possibly the best quality images I've seen of this show, one that I remember really well :thumbs:

One of the first shows I went to - brilliant photos which have helped to bring back great memories. Especially the Danish Alouette and the Boscombe Harvards.

Great originals very well scanned, as usual. The Austrian Aloutte III, on floats no less, is a corker.
