  1. Another fantastically written article with outstanding accompanying pictures; a must read! John's Spitfire display at the Shuttleworth finale this year left a tear in my eye, it was absolute aerial poetry. http://vintageaviationecho.com/john-romain/

    The A-10 is a lot of fun, welcome to the Hog club Bill! I only have the A as part of FC3 and it's enough for me at the moment. Especially with the Harrier taking up enough of my grey matter. I'm sure you'll enjoy that gatling gun, what a tool.

    Yeah, they were just the orchestrated ground explosions, nothing to see here... It does have a poorly Merlin though.

    The newly restored Mk XVI TB885 was used on the Saturday (Dutch Squadron painted 😏) and what you see is the engine going kaput unfortunately! Also worryingly edited to show the ground explosions, nothing crashed don't worry. He landed safely and used a different Spitfire on the Sunday (TA805 Mk IX Spirit of Kent to be precise)

    Not sure if I or anyone else has posted this, but there are some gems in this short film of the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations, an Air Pageant staged at White Waltham Airfield in 1977. Of particular note is the VC10 in some serious ground effect at around the 2:45 mark! 😮
