Was a great experience, 2018's theme was the fifthith anniversary of the shooting of the famous Battle of Britain film, a lot of which was shot at Duxford. To see Spitfires, Hurricanes and Buchons fly off this hallowed turf was a real treat. From memory the during the Spitfire display there were eighteen of the type in the air together!
While there where many highlights one that stood out the handling display of the Red Bulls DC6, never seen a large multi engine prop plane thrown around the sky like that!
Not my footage, found a nice clip of the display on the day, certain forum member adding in some detail as well!
Planecrazy....absolutely correct. When on the display line 45 degrees to the left, 45 degrees to the right and at crowd centre, 45 degrees elevation from my position at crowd centre. I try to talk when the aircraft is departing display line and during repositioning manoeuvres....from what I saw there - and perhaps the photographers angles made it seem worse- I broke my rule ! Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa....
