....second prize two pints of warm English beer.

The following pics were taken last year at the Old Warden Air Display, Biggleswade,Bedfordshire,England on a warm summer's day.
All aircraft shown flew that day including many others that I have not included.

I will award a virtual pint of warm English beer to the first member who can correctly identify ALL aircraft.

With the Avro 504K and the Sopwith Pup is that the lot?

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

Westland Lysander of course! How could I miss that west country connection. I was obviously distracted by that Avro 504k that I didn't notice at the time.

With the patch coming out everyone has forgotten your little comp. So from my earlier post:

1. Gloster Gladiator
2. Grumman Avenger TBM-3R
3. Supermarine Spitfire Vc
4. Hawker Sea Hurricane Ib
5. Westland Lysander
6. Bristol F2B Fighter
7. Royal Aircraft Factory SE5A

and from Taylortony:

oh and the one parked underneath the F2.b Is a Miles Magister and a Miles Falcon Major

Two background aircraft are the Avro 504K and a Sopwith Pup



We'll share the beer.

Hop Back Summer Lightning or Timothy Taylor Landlord please.


Edit: Aha! Is that the 1937 Mignet HM14 Flying Flea in the distance in the picture of the Gladiator, or just a kestrel hovering over the hedgerow?

Not to complain, but I was expecting more exotic stuff, like an Albemarle or a Harrow...

Very nice warbirds though!

Warm beer yak, though i'm not old enough, but warm beer, though english beer is one of the best, so how about a glass of cool smooth (or not) English beer, except don't drink American beer, i don't know how they get drunk from that colored water. No offense to our American friends, only some drunks drink that cheap beer.



Only in the spirit of attack, born in a brave heart, will bring success to any fighter aircraft, no matter how highly developed it may be.

Excellent to hear from the pilot of the Brisfit who flew the plane shown in one of the photos!

There is one aircraft that everyone has missed or ignored...look again.

if you want the name of the one above the gladiator, i request some help, the pic isn't fine enough to allow me to identify it...

It's a biplane, it has dark(blue?) fuselage and white wings...

Take it as read that I've got the answers above, which I did, anyway. But that bird above the Gladdy and Lysander, I believe is a Triplane. since there's a pint of Youngers No.3 in the scales, I'll go ahead and say it's a Fokker DR.V replica.
