A list of aircraft I have had the pleasure to see flying.

The list of aircraft below are all types that I have had the pleasure to see in the air thus far in my lifetime. It is far from complete, and I intend to add to it. However it shows just how varied and interesting the UK vintage scene has been over the last twenty five years.

Please note that if any aircraft that I have seen is a reproduction/replica, I will only state that it is a replica if the aircraft is not built authentically to the original design. Otherwise I will list it simply as the type.

Also note that in many cases I will have seen multiple examples of a given type. Though I will not be listing each individual aircaft, I will where possible list each variant that I have seen. However for some aircraft this will not be possible, simply because there may be just too many to list.

A note to artists

I am often asked by fellow members of this site, whether or not a photograph of mine can be used either for use as reference or for manipulation as part of another artwork.

The answer to this question is yes, feel free to use any of my photographs for such purposes. I do ask however that if the finished piece is ever uploaded online, that you give me the courtesy of being credited and provide a link to the finished piece.

de Havilland DH.90 Dragonfly
Imperial War Museum Duxford 2017.

Visiting the show from Biggin Hill, was the Shipping and Airlines collection de Havilland Dragonfly, a very rare aircraft indeed. Only two examples exist today in airworthy condition, this example and a second that is based down in New Zealand.
Loading...
Well, the current forecast is now for a mostly dry Saturday, with maybe some potential for rain late afternoon. With that, I suspect we will get a show, so it looks like the weekend might not be a complete write off. 

Sunday however, well... let's just say that a snorkel and some flippers might be the most appropriate attire... :O www.bbc.co.uk/weather/0/265060…
Oh dear, it's really not looking good for this weekend's big show at Duxford. The forecast really looks quite dire at the moment, particularly on Sunday... Looks like I'm going to get rather wet... again... After my lens failure at Legends I was really hoping to make up for it this weekend. Well it seems mother nature has different plans.
A rather nice arrival at Old Warden this week in the form of Oliver Wulff's new Albatros D.Va.

 warbirdsnews.com/aviation-muse…
Gloster Gladiator
The Shuttleworth Collection 2014.

This is the Fighter Collection's Gloster Gladiator at Old Warden back in 2014. She is one of two flyable examples of the type in the world and can normally be found at her home, Imperial War Museum Duxford in Cambridgeshire along with the rest of the Fighter Collection's fleet of warbirds. On this occasion she was at Old Warden, where she flew in formation with the second flyable example which belongs to the Shuttleworth Collection.

The Gloster Gladiator was the last biplane fighter to enter service with the Royal Air Force, entering service in 1937. Considering that this was after aircraft such as the Spitfire and Hurricane had taken to the skies, she was obsolescent before squadrons even got hold of them. However it is worth noting that despite her obsolescence, she still had one or two very modern tricks up her sleeve for the time. Most notably, and clearly evident in this photograph was the fact that she had flaps. She was also the first fighter aircraft to enter service with the RAF to utilise a slidable canopy. The type was and still is noted by the pilots who flew them, for being a fine flying machine, so it is a shame in many ways that she came at a time when air forces were transitioning to more modern monoplane fighters, and that her reputation in history has been defined by that. In the end of course, Gladiators did get the chance to prove themselves, and fought valiantly in defence of Malta. But they have never shaken the reputation of being that obsolescent biplane in a world where monoplanes were taking over.

I'm trying to gauge my own perceptions against those of others. So for those who have been watching my work for a while, how would you rate the images I have been uploading recently compared to images caught before I jumped to Nikon back in January.

I wanted to ask you about you render/photo of the Canadian-Vickers PBV-1A-Canso. My interest is that my Father was Crew Chief on a Canadian made PBY 5. He and his crew flew it to England where they flew ASR missions throughout the second world war. He paid a fellow airman with an artistic flair, to pain a nose art of a Vargasesque reclining blond with the name "Miss Pick Up". Now I know with a certainty that your plane is not the same one. I have a photograph taken from one of the crewmen with his camera, of Miss Pick Up sinking. What is left of her lies at the bottom of the North Atlantic. The only difference between them was that my Father's plane, had been painted white, but with some touches of Coastal Command' s livery for a CATALINA. Anyway, it was great to see the image. Great work, and best of luck in your future endeavours.

There's a first theory about the Ju-52 crash. It was a very hot day (more than 30° at 500m), which means it was also hot at the mountains. The plane stayed overnight at Locarno without refueling. Some experts suspect now, that the fuel vaporized which can cause short engine failures. Witnesses said, that the plane flows a sharp turn and than falls nearly straight from the sky. Maybe shortly before flying over the 2625m high Segnes pass such engine troubles appeared and the crew decided to change journey.

Greetings, Daniel.
I'd like to bring to your attention a comment that Artzicon posted to my "Wall of Fire with Doc" image. He refers to both of us and the post is gratifyingly positive.
It's worth a look. :)

Sad news this time out of Switzerland, where JU-Air's HB-HOT was lost during a sight-seeing flight, unfortunately it looks none of the three crew and 17 passengers aboard survived. :(

www.20min.ch/schweiz/ostschwei…

HB-HOT was an ex-Swiss Air Force Ju-52/3m, delivered as A-702 to the Swiss on October 4th 1939; it was transferred to JU-Air on October 15th 1982 and returned to flight in 1985.  During her Swiss Air Force service, she flew in the 1968 war epic "Where Eagles Dare".

I heard the news through the grapevine while I was at Old Warden today. Just horrible news. Especially as those on board were there purely for the purposes of pleasure. It seems somehow worse for that fact... 

I have seen the very machine myself when she displayed at La Ferte Alais around ten years ago.

I never had the pleasure of seeing her, but I was often treated to the joyious spectacle of Lufthansa's D-AQUI or the Salis F-AZJU flying - quite often over my home as well.

It is a horrible shock indeed, to me the feeling is quite similar to when the Dutch Dakota Association's PH-DDA went down in 1996 (I had seen her only four days prior over my house).
