|Autumn Air Display - 1 October 2006|
The last Old Warden air display of 2006 was a special one for me, as I was given a ride in a Ryan PT-22. A lovely plane to fly in! The air display itself was of the usual high quality, despite numerous showers throughout the day. A great end of the season.
|Lydd Airshow - 9 September 2006|
The first Lydd Airshow at the Lydd Airport in Kent was held in the sunny weekend of 9/10 September 2006. Despite what seemed like a small scale show at first, the program was very varied with excellent flying throughout. Let's hope 2007 will see a return of this airshow.
|Military Pageant Air Display - 4 June 2006|
As always, Shuttleworth's Military Pageant Air Display didn't fail to impress. It had a distinct naval tint with a unique formation of a Sea Hawk, a Sea Fury and a Sea Hurricane, led by a superbly restored Seafire. The BBMF Lancaster gave one of its best displays ever.
|Battle of Britain Airshow - 10 September 2005|
Held in the weekend of 10/11 September 2005 at Duxford, this airshow boasted a wide variety of classic aircraft. Additionally there was a spirited display by an RAF Tornado F3 and formation aerobatics by the Breitling Jet Team. Weather conditions were far from ideal though...
|Sunset Flying Evening - 24 September 2005|
If light conditions were bad on the previous show, they were terrible on this one. So bad even, that the Spitfire landing shot was taken with a shutter speed of 1/20th of a second! Most time was spent talking to some nice people I had met on a previous show :)
|Sunset Flying Evening - 20 August 2005|
Despite a fair bit of cloud cover, this Shuttleworth flying evening was very enjoyable and had a number of good photo opportunities with very low sun. After the show some night shots were made with the aid of my car's headlights!
|Military Pageant Air Display - 7 August 2005|
Shuttleworth's biggest air display of 2005, with gorgeous weather and gorgeous aircraft - just perfect! The show included a number of surprising displays, such as John Ashby's replica Storch, which turned on a dime at incredibly slow speed.
|Flying Legends Airshow 2005 - 9 July 2005|
A selection of the 2005 edition of the biggest warbirds airshow in Europe: The Fighter Collection's Flying Legends Airshow at Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire, UK.

|Spring Air Display - 1 May 2005|
The first Shuttleworth show of 2005. The show had a lovely mix of aircraft, from biplanes via aerobatics planes to early jet aircraft. Numerous entertaining displays were performed, such as the ribbon snatch and limbo act.
|Twilight Sunset Air Display - 11 September 2004|
Old Warden is the place to go to see real vintage aeroplanes in action. Home to the Shuttleworth Collection, Old Warden is the perfect setting for a relaxing evening filled with lovely sights, sounds and smells. The magic sunset displays are a personal favourite!
