Last weekend I went to my first airshow in ages, at Lydd in Kent, and took lots of photos of the various flying machines there.
This entry is essentially just an excuse to show of some of the photos I took, so without further ado, I present you with the British army helicopter that somebody decided to name after a text-only web-browser, Lynx
It was fun watching formation flying from a Canberra, Hawker Hunter, and DeHavilland Sea Vixen
But my favourite aircraft of the show has to be the Chinook
Although the B-17 Flying Fortress was nice
Unfortunately I didn't get a lot of opportunity to snap the Spitfire
Here's the Hunter and Sea Vixen again, in a dogfight... or should that be bullfight?
Here are some planes that were doing some formation aerobatics
Including flying under a low gate...
And bursting balloons
Here's another one of the Lynx as it took off
And some Yaks
The Canberra has a couple of very useful features: one, a waving-hole, for putting your hand through and waving at people with; and two, a notice to warn people not to walk through the solid chassis
Well, I've got a whole host more photos, both different shots of the machines I've already shown and of other aircraft I haven't shown, so if anyone is interested in seeing them then just ask. :)
