Dutch F16 & Spitfire

#2
I live right under the IP for the airshow. For two days the Typhoon flew with the Spitfire. I had the Red Arrows flying past my balcony at zero feet and 500 knots.

Noisy gits, even when I bog off to the wood they seem to use it as a forming up point. The traffic is hell for 4 days, still stirs the heart to hear a merlin though!

I thought that in the first pic that was the infamous Czech Spit of BNP fame?

Yes it was a great Show. I was there for all 4 days, spotter that I am. Shame the Blue Eagles weren't there. I suppose Flashing and the boys have got other things on their mind.

Going for a landspeed record were they?

I saw eight Red Arrows(?) go over here yesterday.I thought there were nine of them?
Perhaps the one Duffdike saw at zero feet and 500 knots was actually crashing, it would explain the missing Hawk.

Cheers for the clips, apparently on the Saturday a couple of US F86 Sabres came over Eastbourne but unfortunately I was playing cricket so missed them, bugger!! lol

I saw 8 Red Arrows at one point but there are 9 in the flight. Maybe 1 went US and went home?

Yep - apparently one had a problem on the way and returned to Manston as a precaution.

OT in another thread it mentioned the Russian Air Display Team just had a bad crash. Two SU 27s collided. Glad they weren't over my house !.
