Some German Metal (Arrg! Rammstein!)
Although bassembled in France as a Nord 1002, this Bf 108 was originally constructed in Augsburg and is a genuine warbird, having served with the Luftwaffe in WW2 and was shot down at one stage.
Undoubted Star of the show was this FW 190 (see my close up pics of it elsewhere here), which flew only once each day in the company of its WW2 nemesis,two Spitfire Mk.IXs. Frank Parker, the Southern Hemisphere's only Fw 190 rated pilot had a wee trouble getting it on to the ground, bouncing a couple of times, which caused everyone to hold their breaths as he struggled to get the machine under control, Luckily he did. Both Claus Collings, the founder of the Flug Werk company that built the aircraft and Murray Miers, its owner were at the show; Collings recounting how he built it, starting with a non flying mock-up to settle the details, then built his first flying aircraft; this one, in fact. Interesting to hear.
One of two Kubelwagens blatting round the airfield in the hands of the reanactors.
Some Brits. Bill and Robyn Reid's lovely Anson I made its Omaka debut this weekend, too and made a change from the fast stuff, although its engine noise rivalled the single-seaters in its din.
Spitfire IXs; a classic shape.
Two Yak-3s carried out a tail chase and were one of the best flying displays of the day.
Next, some other sights and sounds around the show of interest.
