Ok thanks, well next show I will try a slightly slower speed and compare results. The problem I find is you can't actually see what you've shot clearly enough on the screen because of the glare. Could have a whole batch ruined and not even know about it!

The aircraft you are not sure about stanford are the Hawker Sea Fury and the Douglas Skyraider. The Skyraider sounds like a giant lawn mower.

Nope...not a Yak-3 nor a Yak-9 although its a deritive of both. Its a Yak-11. Built after WWII for training purposes.

One more vote for the Russian flying team, they rocked! Yak and I-15 put up a good show as well, don't know why the others were flying really easylike on Saturday. At least it looked like they were more keen on cruisin' than flying!

Was there Saturday, fantastic day.
Some selected best bits were the Sea Fury, the two Mustangs stuck to each other like glue - the announcer reckoned 3 to 4 feet clearance between the prop of one and the underneath of the other (brilliant), the Tigercat and Bearcat together, the Bearcat beating up the field near the end, and of course all the Spitfires. The I-15bis was very good too, etc etc. Also a big well done to the P47 guys who got it displayed eventually.

About the Yak-3, it was indeed a re-manufactured one with a radial engine not in-line.

Going again next year, and would highly recommend it to anyone else who can get there.

On the Saturday there were 12 on the flight line - 10 took off to open the display, the Merlin ones taking off in 2 vics (oooh suit you, sir). The Griffon versions included the contra-prop Mk XIX.

The BoBMF one and the Seafire displayed later, the Seafire with the Sea Fury and Skyraider.

Seafire Mk.XVII
A Seafire Mk.XVII (SX336/G-KASX) took to the skies above North Weald on the 3rd May 2006 after a long term restoration project. This is the only airworthy Seafire on the UK register and the only other airworthy Seafire in the world is Jim Smith's FR.47 VP441 based in the USA. SX336 was rescued from a scrapyard in 1973 and all that remained was the fuselage.

The Seafire is now painted in a Fleet Air Arm colour scheme which was applied at Turweston Airfield on 7th February 2006. Hopefully SX336 will be seen at various events in the UK in 2006 with a debut display at Shuttleworth (Old Warden) Military Pageant Air Display on the 4th June 2006 and also Flying Legends, Duxford on 8th-9th July 2006 & Yeovilton International Air Day on the 8th July 2006.

from

http://www.militaryairshows.co.uk/new.htm

Additional was repainted by a mate of mine, Mick Allen at Toweston, and most of the rebuild was carried out by a group lead by I think his name is Alan Purdy ( Nice Bloke ) near Nottingham who was Ex Trent Aeros who used to restore Spits here at EGNX
