Only the second Shuttleworth display I’ve managed to see this year, but it was a special one. Currently on-loan from The Vintage Aviator Ltd are a few replica planes, and the RAF RE8 and Albatros DVa were due to make their public debut at the display, with the Sopwith Snipe on static display. Consequently when we arrived slightly earlier than normal at 10:30 it was already pretty busy.
We did the usual wander round the hangers and the static displays before settling down for the flying. The weather was a bit hit and miss, mostly cloudy, occasionally light showers, but the sun came out when it mattered. Highlights were the aforementioned RAF RE8 and Albatros DVa, and a superb display from the Hawker Hind and Demon pair.
