Sunderland Air Show 2011

Better weather than last year, it started grim, but later the sun came out and what a difference that makes. Click on any image for an enlarged view.

The Royal Navy's Black Cats display team using Lynx helicopters.

Breitling Wingwalkers

With safety harnesses abandoned, the lady wing walkers pose before returning to the cockpit!

The graceful Catalina flying boat was a welcome visitor.

The Matadors display team flying Sbach 300 planes.

One from the past, the De Havilland Vampire. Not the sharpest shot unfortunately, but included as it was the one photo that I got that shows the top of the plane with the side by side cockpit.

The WW2 workhorse, the Hurricane

and its more glamorous stablemate, the Spitfire

The awesome Vulcan bomber, needs to be heard as well as seen!
