It was certainly a benchmark one for me, but the Sunday Wings Over Wairarapa show the following January stole the top spot for me. The wide range of DH types from DH5 to DH98 was magic, Mosquito/Venom/Vampire/Vampire formation, Mosquito, Spitfire, Spitfire, Mustang, P-40, P-40, Corsair formation, 9 x Jets, the Weather... so memorable
Yes I agree. The airshow at Ardmore was great but the airshow at Hood was magic. I knew I was watching something special that maybe I would never see again, and I managed to get up into the mosquito cockpit.
