The Highlight of Shoreham Airshow

Last Years Airfield Attack

Supermarine Spitfire IX – Kent Spitfire

The Shoreham Airshow’s big centrepiece each year is its Battle of Britain airfield attack, ‘scramble’ and formation/tailchase scenario, put together by John Romain and the Aircraft Restoration Company utilising Spitfires, Hurricanes and Messerschmitts to render a very effective Luftwaffe raid on Shoreham airfield, circa August 1940.

Ever since a child, aviation has been a keen interest of mine, with warbirds being my favourite. Since joining Redbubble, I have become a keen follower of HDR work, which I am concerntrating on at the moment.

    That would be something to see! Plus there will still be a few people around who can remember those days (me, for one! LOL) Super photo Colin, but the black and white markings were not introduced until the invasion later in the war – but I doubt that anyone will object!
