the 19th shoreham airshow 2008 ...
No shortage of rain was there this month, no shortage of cloud was there this week, no doubt the weather is going to be abyssmal for the airshow on Saturday? Well as you can see the weather turned out just perfect, thee of little faith!
Above are the fantastic RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team. To see the Hercules which carried the team up, coming in to land on the airstrip was an amazing sight.
During the show the airfield was attacked by German ME108 and ME109 aircraft, resulting in a Spitfire and Hurricane scramble. Set to pyrotechnics and with lookalikes on the ground, this display is a definite blast from the past!
No Captain Mannering, but there were some good stand-ins with Dads Army making an appearance!
This Hurricane flew alongside an Avro Lancaster bomber. A stunning display as ever.
The world’s only formation wing-walking team sponsored by skincare giants Guinot, using Boeing Stearman bi-planes.
Team Guinot performed spectacular new sequences. Having appeared from show number one, this year saw a unique sight of five aircraft with wing-walkers.
Haurel and Lardy are amusing. I must say, like a big kid, I was chuckling all the way through their act. I think Olly noticed, as he gave us a wave as he and Stanley drove off!
