Hundreds of thousands of people followed PlanesTV’s live online broadcasts from 2016 airshows, in this 2-disc programme we bring you the highlights of each of them.
2016 became the year of the United Kingdom’s latest frontline jet, the F-35B Lightning II. It gave an impressive role demonstration at the Royal International Air Tattoo. The Air Tattoo also gave us an awesome site of the extraordinary manoeuvrability of the F-22 Raptor.
At Farnborough we got glimpses of two aeroplanes we haven’t seen much of lately – the gorgeous de Havilland DH88 Comet, and the not-quite-so-gorgeous, but still fascinating Edgeley Optica.
Torbay was a new show on the calendar, and made for a superb setting for airshow regulars such as the Breitling Wingwalkers and the Yakovlevs.
