I didn't know that they were allowed to roll!!

According to the LAA type certification they're not permitted to perform any aerobatic manoeuvres

I Emailed Pietenpol in the USA. Thye commented that the pilot must be good not to over stress the wing.

I have today been sent 62 pictures of the planes at the Jersey air show by a friend who actually lives in Guernsey. Anyone fancy any or all of the pictures, the file size is 10mb ?

My Friend went to Jersey to see his son test flying his home built biplane. This coincided with the air show. Test flights made in the days before the airshow.

I lent him an SLR and telephoto lens. He took 543 pictures NOT ONE OF THE AIRSHOW AIRCRAFT even though he had access to the flight line!! I dispair.cryingcrying

PM-Just send me a PM if you would like to see the rest of the photographs , some look very good, but I am not sure what camera my friend uses ?--he has just sent me details of this video which I may have seen before ?:

For flying enthusiasts --- enjoy---some talking early but when you get to the flying part it's good.

Now
here is an expensive photo shoot for a Commercial that has to be a
super high priced Commercial. Airbus paid the bill. They are really
fighting to stay ahead of American Aero technology. You’ll notice that the language for aviation worldwide is English.

For the last few days, I have seen a twin engined,radial engined aircraft, somewhat similar to a Lockheed, of some type or potentially mistaken for a Mosquito, until you consider the engines and it being a low winged monoplane.

It seems to be coming out of BAE Warton, does anyone know what it is?

Re post by ME 1. Interesting to see a Boomerang in the UK although it's actually a replica built from T6 and Boomerang parts. Most obvious hint is the non authentic tail wheel configuration. Built in the US many years ago.

OK - confession... The following picture was taken of aircraft not flying over my house.

But as one or two of us have said in this thread, some of us have become somewhat accustomed to seeing the odd Spitfire or two flying over. Not quite an everyday event, but fairly common especially for those living not too far from Biggin Hill and some other airfields.

However, I hope I'll be be forgiven for posting a picture, not over my house, but of 14 Spitfires flying together. Now I did see more flying at the same time at both Biggin Hill and Goodwood last summer, but not flying together in such a compact formation.

Meant to say,  this was at the Duxford show last Sunday.  If anyone is interested there's more in my album on Flickr.

I was just sitting here minding my own busines when a Transall came over the house.

To be generous and give the pilot the benefit of the doubt he was only at about 500 feet. It seems a heck of a lot less and certainly wasn't more.

More Spitfires today... smile

Well, to be accurate, almost certainly one Spitfire outbound (from Biggin?) at some time after 3pm and maybe an hour later heading back in the opposite direction. I was flying up on Epsom Downs at the time, but the outbound flight would most likely have gone close to my house. Too far away to identify any more details of the aircraft other than that is was a Spitfire.

Just had one of the Swiss Air Junkers JU52s go over. What a glorious sound. Heard it coming and went out onto the terrace in the light rain, neighbour across the road did the same and lots of grinning and thumbs up signs to each other. Got a right earful from the wife though when I went back indoors in soggy slippers.

A few years back a Ju 52 flew reasonably low over the Tegernsee, whilst my wife and myself were having a Bier und Kuchen at a lake side bar at Rottach-Ergern, south Bavaria. It was so evocative, suddenly it could have been the mid 1930s. Where it came from, where it was going, what it was doing, I did not have a clue.

Ah but it was worth getting soaked all the way to the skin. Many women have no soul
