Nice bit of fillum. FW-190 take off circa 4:25 is a bit daring - I thought.

Spectators Balcony (Spotters Corner) If you're not a professional pilot but want to discuss issues about the job, this is the best place to loiter. You won't be moved on by 'security' and there'll be plenty of experts to answer any questions.

Had I won that 170m lottery sum last week I'd be giving them a call... Absolutely love a Griffon Spit and a low back XIV/XVIII best of all.

It's a long time since I last heard the expression "double star" to describe a two-row radial.

East German (VEB) licence-built version of the venerable and once ubiquitous Shvetsov engine.

Can't see them getting away with much of that at UK airshows these days.
Great flying.
