The Vintage Planes, Trains and Automobiles Picture Show

Yes.

And me too.

It’s Hunter XG194 at Flying Station (Formerly RAF) Wattisham, painted in the “Black Arrows” scheme that it wore as the lead aircraft in the world record loop of 22 Hunters.

I think we can agree that it’s quite different to the original design!

Went over to Shuttleworth today, can’t remember the last time I had such nice weather for a show.

Proper daylight makes this photo lark waaaaayy less tricky!

Nice to see a Piston Provost and a Jet Provost flying at the same venue, not a huge amount of aero development going on here was there…?!

I do admire the convenient positioning of the Lewis on the Bristol Scout and can’t help but wonder if something similar could be considered for road use?
