Not Wolverhampton.

Rather than the aircraft...consider the terrain & land use beyond the airfield in the second shot.

Here's one more blurred shot - as the Pitts taxis out to the active.

Looks to me a little bit like the layout of Bembridge. That could be the Solent over to Portsmouth on the horizon. Runway orientation is about right.....as are the taxiways, sort of.
