A Unique Trio

By teocali
Three iconic WW2 aircraft flying in formation at the Shuttleworth Season Finale, Air Race Day, Old Warden last Sunday. From left to right: The Gloster Gladiator, Westland Lysander and Sea Hawker Hurricane. According to the commentator, this was a very unique spectacle, as these three aircraft are very rarely seen flying together in formation.

Great shot Sylvia!!!, having all three makes this quite exceptional!!!.....I used to have the Lysander and Hurricane as airfix models when I was a kidSmile........I was most upset when the instructions told me that the great big 'Bomb' under the Lysander was in fact an external fuel tank! LOLTongue

An excellent shot Sylvia. Amazing to think of the different roles these aircraft played in the defence of Britain all those years ago.
