Another fine day at Old Warden
Shuttleworth’s Military Pageant at Old Warden on 2 July produced a number of fine aerial performances and, as is now customary, some unusual display pairings. With an apparent Royal Flying Corps/army Co-operation sub-theme, the appearance of the Bristol M1C and the BE2, the Bristol Fighter and Lysander flying together, the visiting Army Historic Aircraft Flight Trust and a pair of Austers flown by Kevin Hale and Trevor Bailey, were noteworthy.
With calm conditions the Bristol Boxkite and Avro Triplane put on a splendid performance, with the Avro accelerating past the Boxkite on the flyby having kept together in the turns.
