Duxford airshow (Saturday) 13-9-2014

Postby Sickbag_andy » Mon Sep 15, 2014 9:35 pm

I spent Saturday at the Duxford show, weather was a bit dull which made photography a bit challenging at times and I ended up experimenting with slower shutter speeds to get enough light through the lens, enabled me to get a few with plenty of prop blur. Apart from a few on the flightline walk, these were all taken from the Friends of Duxford enclosure in front of the USAF museum.
Sunday was a sell out and apparently very packed but I couldn'tgo anyway - seems the 2 Lancasters are attracting big crowds everywhere.

The Great War Display Team included these 2 Fokker Triplane replicas, the white patterend one was flown by Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson who also flies 757s and is a 737 instructor - quite a contrast!

And what I thought was the star performance, the Vulcan with the Gnats and then solo…
