Some very nice photographs from the Mildenhall Air Fete 1977 have just been posted up on UKAR. Love the F-16 in the first two photos.-

Also from 1977 is this great cine film footage from Leicester courtesy of Youtube. Worth viewing just to see the very low flying Vickers Varsity & Sally B displays -



& some real gems in these clips from Waddington in 1979 -


...& more from Mildenhall. Also 1979 -






& finally Mildenhall 1978 -

I recently came across this photograph,I was doubting my memory,,,I do not think this was taken at Baginton but I believe the time frame was 1962/3...When air displays were worth visiting,I have not been to any displays for many years,they are so boring with the display taking place seemingly in the next county!

That exact same formation happened at Bruntingthorpe's Open House (below) on 28th May 1960 & I think it also overflew Celveston & Alconbury also on the same day for their Open Houses

Okay, I know the thread title is 1960's/1970's but here's a selection I couldn't resist editing & posting up here from Wymeswold in 1955 taken at the Open Day that was held there that year from this private collection. All photos are courtesy of a great article from the Loughborough Echo from Wednesday 27 March. -



A few more in the Wymeswold thread here - www.airfieldresearchgroup.org.uk/forum/l...018?start=270#159110
