I went to the Shuttleworth Collection's evening drive in airshow last week - "A Scurry of Chipmunks". Its the first airshow that I've attended since the UK locked down. The lighting and weather were poor but it was a really fun show and well managed given the current restrictions. There were a fair few weather related scrubs, nothing older than 1930's flew, but that is the risk you take when going to see such old aircraft perform. Below is a selection and a link to the rest of the album if you are interested:

Absolutely GLORIOUS pics! I can almost hear them!

Thanks for posting them.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Very kind Kit. Im really glad that Shuttleworth found a COVID compatible format to hold airshows. But the drive in format meant that I was a fair way back from the flight line fence. Hopefully well be able to get back to the pre COVID format because one of the great joys of shuttleworth is that you could be close enough to smell the displays!

I am beyond words envious of the amount of flying Spitfires in UK. Its not fair! You should have been forced to surrender at least half of them at Brexit..  ;)
