I'd just like to thank everybody for all the recent faves and comments on all my uploads over the last couple of weeks. I'm glad you all have been enjoying my coverage so far of this years flying activities. It always means so much that the images I upload are so well received. This season has already produced some really stand out displays and formations that I'm sure will be remembered for a long time to come. Seeing the de Havilland Comet in formation with the BBMF Spitfire and Hurricane immediately springs to mind.

The season has only really just began however and the busiest time for air displays in the UK is just about to kick off. July is traditionally the month of large international airshows with shows such as the Royal International Air Tattoo, RAF Waddington, RNAS Yeovilton, Flying Legends and of course Farnborough taking place. This year there is no Farnborough show, it being a bi-annual show, and also RAF Waddington have no airshow this year either due to runway maintenance, and that may well extend into next year too. However I will be attending the Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford and of course Flying Legends so still a busy time for shows. Both are very different shows indeed though so it's often quite a pace change with them taking place on consecutive weekends. The Royal International Air Tattoo is predominantly military with plenty of fast jet action, where as Flying Legends has a no Jets policy. Both are big busy shows and feels very different from the more relaxing atmosphere of Shuttleworth or other such shows. However the flying is always top quality with aircraft from all over Europe and the world participating in both shows, they're well worth the effort of attending.

There are other shows during July also and this weekend I will be busy both days, taking in the Baginton Air Pageant at Coventry Airport on Saturday, followed by the Shuttleworth Pageant on Sunday at Old Warden. It looks like it's going to be rather a busy show at Old Warden this weekend as the Vulcan is down to display. Tickets are of course fast running out, so if anybody is planning to attend and are not members of the SVAS like myself (Shuttleworth Veteran Aeroplance Society), then you better book tickets ASAP. They might not be available on the gate.

Anyway I hope you all enjoy the coming photographs, here is my itinerary for the next month.

4th July- Baginton Air Pageant, Coventry Airport
5th July- Shuttleworth Collection Military Pageant, Old Warden
11th-12th July- Flying Legends, Imperial War Museum Duxford.
18th July Shuttleworth Collection Best of British Evening Air Display, Old Warden.
19th-20th July- Royal International Air Tattoo, RAF Fairford

Well that's not quite for me to say, but hey this is Britain, I'd get nothing done at all if I let the weather get in the way. Lets just say I get my fair share of practice shooting in inclement conditions. :D

Thanks for sharing your stunning images. You inspired me to visit Old Warden for the first time on 23rd, such a wonderful atmosphere and evocative historic machines, I know where I'm going to spend my weekends this summer and beyond!

I'm glad you were inspired to go, and even more pleased that you chose a cracking day to attend your first show. Shuttleworth is just about my favourite place in the world to see an air display, and the place is never better than on those occasions when the air is still enough and the weather is kind enough to permit the Edwardian machines to fly.

My association with the place started as yours with being inspired by another to attend a show. That was fifteen years ago now. The atmosphere and the  experience of such a picturesque airfield with amazing vintage machines was so wonderful, I have pretty much returned time and time again ever since. And the great thing about Old Warden is that, at least in the time I've known the place, it has never changed. It's almost timeless.

My images from Saturday will be uploaded soon and seeing as it was a good show on Saturday, there's plenty of them to come. :)
