Thanks David. If I had realised that it was to be as good as your pictures show, I would have made the effort to go today.

Was a great day out, managed to get there and back without any issues. Good to meet a few more Davids with model T's :-)

The FA18 was the 2nd last show of the day, I think you guys had left by then. It did 10 or so passes then came back for a few in formation with a Mustang.

WOW! Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

How fast does that trailer go with that engine mounted on it? :-)

Trailer mounted Rolls Royce Merlin V 12 engine ( Spitfire, Mustang, Hurricane and other too l guess ), my understanding is that insurance regulations prevent the engine from being fired up at shows, because it has a partial prop on it.... It all sounds like more red tape Bulls...t to me, l'd love to see that monster fire up..
a couple more pics from the 186 l took yesterday.

Pretty sure these three were Harvard's, 1 x US, 1 x AUST and 1 x New Zealand air force markings, l am positive that that is a kiwi on the last.
Thanks to the Tyabb Airfield airshow organizers for inviting us down to help with the cars and veteran personnel commemorative drive past.
We thank them all past and present for their continued great work in making all our lives just that little more free.
It was a great fun day.

The chap pictured with the black shirt and glasses owns the mustard colored 16' Touring. Sadly wee farewelled his wife at a memorial service only two weeks ago. She was lost to cancer. Fantastic to see Ivor enjoying a day out with his grandchildren. Connie is sure to be watching from above!

David - great photos!

The V-formation showing (top to bottom) Spitfire (very rare Mk IIX), P40, ???, P40 and P51 Mustang. I think the front one is a CAC (Commonwealth Aircraft Co) Boomerang. If you have more photos of that I bet our US friends would be interested to see it - these were designed and built el fasto when the Japs entered the war - they are basically a DC3 engine with wings and a pilot sitting on top! They are a very, very impressive little aeroplane.

Best wishes,
John Stokes
