    Will the replica be a flying example or for static display?

    Fourth trip out in Jessie this year.

    Teesside Airshow - May 27th

    Around a dozen MV's turned out for the Teesside Airshow. With the number of aircraft cancellations before the show, and on the day due to weather, it was more of Teesside Show, than an Airshow, but still an enjoyable day out. I saw the BBMF Spit and Hurricane display, but missed the Harvard due to hiding from the first rainstorm under a food van shelter. In the static aircraft park, I saw a very nice Bombardier Challenger 350 executive jet that was obviously meant to be mine; as it had my name on it - G-SCAR.





    Below, the oldest Chipmunk still flying, number 11 on the production line, and a friend's Auster.

    The Slingsby Firefly, Tutor and an aerobatic team flew, plus the Hughes OH-6 Loach heli, and I think that was it, apart from the RAF Typhoon which flew in as I and most of the public were leaving after the thunderstorm passed. The 7 feet tall security fence along the crowd line didn't help with seeing the show or photographing aircraft on the runway.

    The BBMF were the only aircraft of interest I ended up photographing in the air. 60 years after the formation of the BBMF, they are still shy about showing the top sides of their aircraft during displays!

    Late in the afternoon, the gathering thunderclouds and increasing wind speed indicated action needed to be taken. I helped the aircraft owners push the lighter planes into the T2 hangar, becoming trapped there by the heavy rain, while the rest of the MV's cleared off!! So I spent the rest of the afternoon chatting to the pilots in the hangar before the rain eased off and I was able to get back to a rather damp Jeep. The open canvas rear window was pointing towards the storm!
