My Dragon Rapide flight

Recommended Posts

As Mr Ice Cube once (sort of) sang, Today Was A Good Day. Well today was yesterday, and this is what I did yesterday   :lol:  

 

The mornings entertainment; a flight in this over Cambridge, Ely and Newmarket:

A panoramic from my seat at the back (the observant may note the bell with the gopro strapped to his head   :rolleyes:    :lol:  ):

Cloud base was about 2000ft and a bit scattered but we stayed well under that and there was plenty of bits of blue sky. Overall a very comfy flight (decent leg room and a proper arm chair to sit on) if a little noisy, especially being by the door.

 

Throughout the day there were Spitfires in the air most of the time - quite often those lucky enough to have paid the £3k for the back seat of the 2 seater one. So an almost constant sound of Merlin engine. 

 

These were also on display, which I am a big fan of:

Later in the afternoon we were wandering around when we looked down towards the B17 - hang on a sec, those engines appear to be running :o

 

A few minutes later it taxied out with some very happy people waving from the cockpit:

It then proceeded to take off and buzz the airfield at low level quite a number of times with some steep turns at low level. Simply awesome. I'll whisper this but I think I actually prefer it to the Lancaster...
