Fantastic pics mate.
That top one of the MiG 21 is excellent.  Took me a bit of looking to work out it was wearing a bag over its head.

It looks VERY wet there, so which day did you go? I was there on Saturday and it was like the Ghobi desert most of the time!  :o
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! :)

Thanks guys. I was there on Friday. It was very wet! My mrsí work sits right under the practice display area. And she got to see the display teams strut their stuff all week prior. Not jealous at all!

It certainly was, and there were two of them, one flew a display as well

That pic of the A400 really gives a good idea of the prop-wash over the wing doesn't it.

Last weekend was a wet and windy race day at Old Warden. I was slightly relieved to see that the rain was going to abate but hadn't considered the wind conditions, which unfortunately grounded most of the display. But better a plane that you can fly tomorrow...

Heres a short selection of what I have processed so far - the short display didn't seem to curtail my trigger finger it seems















More on the album if you are interested: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmHwF6dF

Still ~900 phots to process...

There aren't enough shiny silver aircraft or cars nowadays.  :-\

Nice pics, all those look amazing!

Thanks gents. The Railton snuck in after the main car parade had finished. It caught a few people off guard as the announcer said that there would be a break for lunch. 5 minutes later, once the flight line had thinned, out it roared.

I managed to get some of the Hurri and T-51 phots processed this morning, so here are a few more (including shiny silver ones)







Just some Puss Moth and Provost pics to go through now.

Chain drive cars! gotta love them.

I've been snooping through your Flickr.  George Shuttleworth Speed Demon!  Marvellous bike, marvellous movie.

Napier Railton was capable of 168mph and only had rear brakes.

Great pics, thanks for sharing.

It sounds awesome too, IIRC it's the only running Napier Lion in the world.
