Abingdon Air and Country Show 2013

Abingdon Air and Country Show 2013

The surprise star for what is traditionally the first big show of the UK season was the perfect weather – warm sunshine, clear air and some fluffy cloud ideal for great video footage.

The biggest aircraft was an RAF Tristar making a rare flyby Planes and the biggest warbirds were the Avro Lancaster and D-Day veteran C-47 Skytrain.

More warbirds included the only Battle of Britain veteran Hurricane and the legendary P-51 Mustang backed by trainers of the day; North American Harvard and Boeing Stearman of the Breitling Wingwalkers.

International support came from Belgium, the Netherlands 2013 and a Polish Navy Bryza on static display. Military trainers were especially well represented and included a sparkling display by a Scottish Aviation Bulldog.
