A few photos I took at Damyns Hall aerodrome in Essex at their annual Military and flying machines show on 9th August.This location is just one of
those classic English all grass airfields with one active runway about 600 metres long,what an idyllic and perfect way to spend a sunday (and my
The beautiful Luscombe Silvaire......
It's nice to see something of this age (this particular Tiger Moth was made in 1943) still as fully aerobatic as it was all those years ago....
What's one of these (and don't look it up,just for fun!)?
The amazing Fiesler Storch.I've seen these in museums enough times,but this is the first time I've ever seen one flying.A take off run that's about
5 times it's own length and a landing run no more than about twice it's own length.......
This is the closest I've ever seen a fixed wing aircraft doing what only rotary wing can do.In this photo it was hanging there almost
motionless,crawling forward at not much more than walking pace......
It's not really 'wing walking' is it?
The last and only flying B17 in Europe,the famous Sally B/Memphis Belle......
Sally shows us how they made chemtrails in WW2 (lOL LOL LOL LOL...)
I live 5 miles from the facility/airfield where Paul Allen displays and flies his collection. Most every weekend in the summertime you will see a
P51-D Mustang, FW190, Zero, B24 and a whole host of WWII combat craft being flown. Allen has stringent criteria which must be achieved prior to an
aircraft being shown to the public, and his team has refurbished these beautiful warbirds to topnotch condition.
I love this era of aircraft, with particular interest in projected 2nd Gen. jet aircraft slated for Luftwaffe post 1944-45. Some of the drawings were
years ahead of their time, and many characteristics were evident in 1950's combat airframes. Thanks for the great pics, especially the Storch--Hannah
