So last weekend as a treat my dad took Alex & I to Duxford's Flying Legends airshow. Now this is something I've been to before and thoroughly enjoyed so to be going back was brilliant!. My dad has always been into airplanes and model making since he was around 6 so he always loves going to these type of shows.
I love going places with my dad because he's so full of useless knowledge it's like going with your own tour guide! We drove down to Duxford for about 10, went to look around the museums and stuff before getting lunch and finding a good spot to sit and watch the planes.
The aerobatics that the planes did was awesome and even though it was ridiculously warm I had a brilliant day and we've all decide to go to the airshow in September when my favourite plane (the Eurofighter Typhoon) will be flying :D, that time though i'm going to hire a long lens for my Canon.
Here's some photos:
|Looking down the end of a barrel in the musuem. |
|This is a Junkers 52 which is what my dad travelled around in in the 80s|
|Alex looking as dashing as ever!|
|People dressed in 40s on the flight line so made the photo look older than it is!|
|Alex & my dad bonding while dad talks about the B17 Flying Fortress|
|Low flying... below 500ft!|
|B17 Sally B role playing in the sky.|
|Let's just fly away!|
|The Junkers up in the air!|
|My daddy :D|
|Spectating the flying.|
|Weird rings that the plane left :P|
Thanks for reading! and don't forget to
Keep Smiling! :D
