2020 –ย Flying in formation with the 1940 vintage NA64 YALE from Duxford to Old Buckingham via Fenland and back to Duxford. This was the first time I had formated with the Yale flown by Ian Jones. We kept the speed down to around 100 mph which made life easy for me in the Harvard having lots of power to stay with the slower YALE. The YALE has 420 HP compared to the 600 HP in the Harvard although the YALE is around 1000 pounds lighter! A nice combination of WW2 trainers in formation makes for a unique airshow display, lots of noise especially from the YALE in fine pitch!

2019 ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ทย ย (Below) Performing at the September Airshow at SUSHM Airpark in Turkey 2019 – SHG Airshow is an international organization organized annually by Sivrihisar Sportive Aviation Society at Sivrihisar General Aviation Center Necati Artan Facilities and it addresses the aviation fans from every age. Besides emphasizing the significance of the aviation culture.

2019ย  ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง (Below) First flight of the New Year, 27th January 2020 – A great start to 2020 with a Display Authorisation (DA) renewal and upgraded. This year cleared for 500 feet standard aerobatics and a flypast of 100 feet. So looking forward to performing in the UK this year with a fresh routine. It looks like we will have a busy international display season this year with Turkey and Germany already confirmed. Hoping to do more UK shows this year.

May 13thย ย ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ทย 16th ย 2019 once again saw me in the SUSH Air Park in Turkey flying the Harvard “Happy Hour” This Harvard is a mint ex SAAF warbird that has a new looking interior with a full GPS fit and working HSI and VOR etc ย  Its like flying a new, tight aircraft straight out of the factory! I enjoy the freedom of the sky Turkey has to offer, to practice display routines for the 2019 airshow season. The Air Park is situated away from noise complainers and controlled airspace so a pilot can really feel the freedom to experiment. You have to be a little careful though as the airfield is around 2700 feet above sea level. This was fine in 8*C however now in May at 20*C and with temperatures rising, I could really feel the performance of the T6 change!

Abingdon Airshow May 2018

This was my 3rd airshow in the UK and a flat display, that is to say, no aerobatics just a flypast routine making lots of noise with a wing over at the turn points. I should be displaying at Abingdon again in 2019 with another flypast routine however this time in the NA 64 YALE.

Mike Day has a great day on the 15th December 2017 in the Wacky Wabbit!

Curved approach to land

ย Crosswind landing – 15 gusting 25-knot crosswind

I really love this headgear set up. It’s the original B type flying helmet with the D type mask as used in the Battle of Britain and recently seen in the latest film ‘Dunkirk’ The goggles are original 1930s RAF MK II goggles as used by pilots in the Battle of Britain… Extremely comfortable set up and definitely my preference for the flying season 2018 -!

Aerobatics from 500 feet base in G-BUKY Harvard 4

The pilot on this occasion was Neil Oakman demonstrating a smooth, accurate display in G-BUKY a Harvard 4. Loops and Cubans were initiated from 500 feet agl which is quite low in a piece of heavy iron with a low powered engine such as the R1340 600 HP radial… All moves here are expertly executed and demonstrates the agility of the Harvard in the right hands.
