This year’s display will feature a variety of aircraft including; DH Queen Bee biplane, flown by John Flynn. Around 460 Bees were built and this is the only remaining airworthy example. Robin Braithwaite, also this year’s Flying Display Director, will be flying his blue & white Piel Emeraude. This is an all wooden two-seater aircraft with Spitfiresque wings and a Rolls Royce engine. An iconic Tiger Moth biplane is flown by Steve Carrington-Porter. The Moth is also all wood and powered by the Gypsy Major engine. Another Moth variant is the cream and mauve Thruxton Jackaroo, flown by Tricia Dear-Neville. The Jackaroo used to be a Tiger Moth but it was modified to become an enclosed four-seater. Tricia is a whiz at bursting balloons. And finally, flying his deHavilland Chipmunk (in the same colours as Mrs Neville) is Captain Dennis Neville. Dennis is by far the most experienced with thousands of flying hours to his name, from gliders, through crop dusters to biz-jets.
