This year's Legends was run at a more relaxed pace than usual, but it still managed to entertain, excite and exhilarate in equal measures.
I've just skimmed through my photos so far. I only attended on Saturday, I had a ticket for Sunday but I decided to show some commitment to the Shuttleworth Collection show that was on the same day.
Anyway, enough rambling, here are some photos, the full set's at www.flickr.com/photos/shuttleworthpix/sets/72157630347047594/ I'll add to it as I go through my photos. All photos can be viewed at 2000 pixels wide by clicking on the Flickr link, right clicking on the photo and selecting "original". The photos look much better at that size.
Love the Spitfire Shots. They almsot make you think they are air to air. The one with the three Spits head on would be brown trouser time for a 109 pilot glancing back over his shoulder.. :"Gott ein himmel!!" TACKA TACKA TACKA TACKA!!!!
This plan's as cunning as a fox that used to be Professor of cunning at Oxford University but has now moved on and is working with the U.N at the high commission of cunning planning
Superb pics, this show is at the top of my wish list, that flypast would be something to die for. 21 ww2 warbirds in one big gaggle, cor blimey. I scared my son by being able to ID them all. probably means I should've got out more. Steve.

Pretty impressive - however IIRC, the most we counted in the final Balbo was 35 or 36 at one year's Legends. Another event at Duxford had 16 Spitfires in formation. I think we'll see better in the future, too, with luck.
