Not bad... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
The Buchon sounded like it wanted to eat something... The engine growled like I've never heard. Those DVD videos are tame compared to the real sound.

Lots of stalls, but this was the best and most popular..

You won't believe what you see here !!!

There was the Wildcat, Hellcat, Bearcat, and this guy..
The wildcat actually sounded like a popcorn grinder ????

And then there was this...

One thing you don't get in the game is the shreaking whistle as this approaches you and top speed. If you think the jericho siren is freaky... you must have 5 of these guys flying straight at you and that merlin whistle is enough to make your shoes run by themselves.

I'll be home sometime and will organise the rest of this line of pics. There should be more pics from others who were there, maybe I saw them, but just didn't know them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

According to the commentators, the pilot rebuilt it out of a lot of original parts http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Didn't the commentator also say that the Bleriot was 1 of 2 which the pilot owned? It was a great display by him as well.

Those photographs are great. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif It's too bad that I'm busy sleeping all day. I'd probably get bored at some point and check Duxford's schedule for air shows. I HAD to miss the best day at Duxford this year.

From what I heard she clipped the mound at the bottom of the runway,damaging her port undercarriage,resulting in its partial collapse when she landed,and some pretty extensive damage to the underside of the aircraft.Put Classic Wings flying back about an hour,resulting in a very late get away!
