Last week, I picked up our tickets for the International Airshow at RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire.
The flying displays are always very extensive and range from vintage, civilian and military aircraft’s of many nations. Our favorites are the the Battle of Britain memorial flight which includes the famous Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster bomber. The air dance of the Black Cat Lynx helicopters team are fun to watch and of course, what airshow isn’t complete without the Red Arrows flying display.
Here’s a few pictures I’d taken at the show in 2006. At the time I only owned a low spec 1.3mp digital camera but a friend at work had kindly loaned me his Fuji5000 with 10x optical zoom. Just one day with this little baby and I was hooked on photography.
The last time we were at the show I was gutted we missed the flight of the Avro Vulcan XH588 which belongs to the ‘Vulcan to the sky’ trust and is said to be the only airworthy example in the world. It’s on the flight roster for this years show so hopefully we’ll finally get to see it in action.
