A WWI Afternoon, Sunset and Night Shoot with flying, period vehicles and re-enactors, 16th April 2016

 

Snipe and BE2

The only thing that looked to have gone AWOL at 1545 last Saturday at Stow Maries was the sun! But with 15 mins to go the clouds parted and we had a great if chilly evening. My thanks to the Team at Stow – Russell, Fiona, the Twins and many more – who made it all possible.  Thank you also to David Bremner for bringing his Bristol Scout all the way from Cheshire and for flying it before breaking it down to trail it to Shuttleworth the next day.  We wish him all the best in his epic homage to his grandfather flying the Scout from Thassos near the Dardanelles in the summer as his grandad did 100 years ago.  Thank you also to Neil and Andy for bringing together such and interested and interesting group.

WAHT Flying Programme 2016

One down and 17 events to go for WAHT in a very busy flying season.  We are determined to keep the aviation legacy of WW1 alive. There are a few more events to be published which must stay under wraps for a bit longer but we will be taking our full part in commemorative events across the country.  Watch this space! DF
