AIR DISPLAYS FOR 2022 TBC
Below were our 2021 aerial acts.
A breath-taking display from Ultimate Warbird Flights will see a Spitfire ML407 and a Hispano Buchón ‘White 9’ going head to head in a WWII dogfight.
The Grace Spitfire ML407 was originally built at Castle Bromwich in early 1944 as a Mark IX single seat fighter and served in the front line of battle throughout the last twelve months of World War II with six different allied Squadrons of the RAF’s 2nd Tactical Air Force. ML407 flew a total of 176 operational combat sorties amassing an impressive total 319 combat hours. ML407 was delivered to 485 New Zealand Squadron on the 29th April 1944 by Jackie Moggridge, one of the top lady pilots of the Air Transport Auxilllary (ATA), where it became the ‘mount’ of Flying Officer Johnnie Houlton DFC who was accredited, whilst flying ML407, with the first enemy aircraft shot down over the Normandy beachhead on 6th June D-Day.
The Hispano HA-1112-M1L “Buchon” is a licence built ME109 G produced by Hispano in Spain in the 1950’s. The “Buchon” is fitted with a late spec Rolls Royce Merlin, rather than the DB605 of an ME109. This installation gives the aircraft tremendous reliability still maintaining the fantastic looks and performance of the ME109.
