Flightshow Oostwold

May 22, 2013

I have waited for this flightshow for a long time! I was very excited as this show was all about aeroplanes from WWII. That meant: Spitfires! The Spitfire at which I posed (and which you can read in my previous post) for my photoshoot with Reem Groot was unfortunately absent and was announced as the biggest surprise for the show. But two Spitfires from Duxford, - a mark IX (mark 9) and a Spitfire XIV (mark 19) where there, luckily. Ofcourse the IX was the most beautiful. And Lindsay was a happy girl.

I have met alot of nice people and I was recognized by many, which came a little bit as a surprise for me.
I promised an online friend -Frank Zwerver- to have a cup of coffee with them before the show began. Their photographer they brought, took some shots!

Frank is on the left. Behind them is the most amazing fighter aircracft ever: The Supermarine Spitfire IX.

A job I would love to do: called Wing walking. Two ladies are doing gymnastics on top of the plane (The Stearmans). Yes the plane even makes loopings.
