A wet and windy late-autumn afternoon, and a chance to refl ect on a superb year for British historic aviation. The completed restorations to airworthiness of multiple Hispano Buchóns and Spitfi res, a Hurricane, a Lysander and more, the return of a P-47 Thunderbolt to UK skies — make no mistake, this has been a special time. This is before we even recall the visitors from overseas, none more outstanding than the Flying Bulls’ marvellous Bristol Sycamore. And 2018’s best historic aviation occasions simply sparkled. The RAF Cosford Air Show, Flying Legends, IWM Duxford’s Battle of Britain Air Show and multiple Shuttleworth Collection displays were events that deserve to live long in the memory from a vintage summer.
