BBMF at Cosford

VideoPosted by Peter Smith Wed, June 13, 2018 22:44:15

I don't recall seeing the BBMF doing a four ship at any previous shows I've attended so this was a first for me. Looked and sounded great.

The Berlin Airlift Historical Foundation have returned their C-97 to the air within the last few days. It's the only airworthy a/c of its type.

Here it lifts off after a refuelling stop.

A few high lights with a refreshing lack of verbal diarrhoea drowning out the aircraft.

Strange incident

VideoPosted by Peter Smith Sun, June 11, 2017 23:53:22

Not sure what causes this so I won't speculate but this Spitfire XIX flipped on to its back in France today moments after starting its take off run. Fortunately the pilot is reported to be OK

Jap Zero

VideoPosted by Peter Smith Wed, June 07, 2017 18:05:51

Whilst all Zeros are technically Japanese this flight a few days ago in Japan in the hands of a Japanese pilot was a first for over 70 years. The aircraft is the usual data plate rebuild and has a Pratt & whitney engine but it looks the part.
