Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

A fascinating and excellent set of images Walti. It looks like a brilliant event and it seems so incongruous seeing those primitive aircraft performing so well in front of your modern camera. A great post.

Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

The DH Comet is interesting!

I served my apprenticeship with De-Havillands. They had a showroom at their Leavesden factory (now Warners Film Studios). Hanging from the ceiling of the showroom was the Comet. I guess it had been there for years. Nice to see it's in the air again. I wonder how much the restoration cost?

The odd thing is that I can find no online reference to it ever being at Leavesden, yet I have a clear image of it hanging over the conference table in the showroom!

I can't remember if its a 1906 or 1909 plane, either way it's over 100 years old.... One viewer was singularly unimpressed by the flight, to which his wife (one assumes) said "when you're over a hundred I bet you couldn't even walk it!"
Apologies, I've misled you all! This wasn't the 1909 Bleriot, (the worlds oldest flying plane etc...) this was the 1910 Deperdussin! - still over 100 years old, so still very impressive!

It looks like you had a great day & you're excused for taking lots of photos & thanks for sharing these impressive sets of them.

Re: Shuttleworth Collection evening flying display

Fantastic images!

Note to anyone who likes this sort of stuff: do go to see 'Dunkirk'. The film has some issues for me, but it does some things superbly well, and one of them is to provide a realistic impression of air combat in a Spitfire.

Try to see the IMAX version, unless you readily get airsick!

You've tried out our new iMax cinema then? What's it like?

The film was good in there: that screen is new so it doesn't smell of urine and Jeyes Fluid like the other screens at that complex!

Normally we much prefer to go to the Cambridge Picturehouse, but I fancied seeing it in IMAX.

The colours are very muted, presumably for 'atmosphere' although of course you adapt very quickly and soon stop noticing that.
