Early July saw another instalment of the wonderful Flying Legends airshow at the Imperial War Museum – Duxford, near Cambridge. The show is essentially a warbird Mecca, with visitors in their thousands coming from across Europe to attend the spectacle. Each year The Fighter Collection manage to organise an incredibly diverse collection of warbirds, with participants (both aircraft and pilots) travelling great distances to take part.
There are many aircraft which take part but notable appearances for me were the Seafire LF III, flown by Richard Grace on the day and an absolutely stunning machine to behold. The 109 G4 – ‘Red Seven’, with its wonderful sounding Daimler Benz 605 A engine crackling away. The Curtiss P-36C, a recent addition to the TFC stable and of course the Red Bull P-38 Lightning, which is always an incredible thing to see displayed.
Anyway – enough of the rambling, it was an utterly fantastic weekend with all kinds of weather to contend with and I took a good number of photographs. Click on the image below to head into the gallery and sample Flying Legends through my lens and have a think about going next year.
