Brilliant shots and what a FAB weekend ! Thanks for sharing these - we learn something everyday
The WOW factor for me is that I get to fly with some of the best pilots in the UK. I am not good enough to fly as a display pilot, but the ground is equel when the doors are closed to the public.

What propulsion were the propeller less planes using?
Al the jet engine planes use just that (well minature gas turbines). Look here for a good example. http://www.wrenturbines.co.uk/engines/turbojet/wren-160

Just do not look for the price...
