The Fighter Collection at Duxford hosts what has come to be arguably the best warbird show in the world. The weather in 2012 was perfect for video; clear air and fluffy clouds. To accomplished flying and some unique formations add skilled camerawork, stunning minicam sequences, start-ups and close-up shots and you have a thrilling DVD from start to finish.
Notable displays included 3 Mk1 Spitfires flying together, the Curtiss Hawk trio, the Corsair and Bearcat pairing and the 7 Spitfire beat-up and tail-chase.
The star performer for the writer was the Lufthansa Ju 52 but for most others it was either the new razorback P-47 or Tom Schrade’s Sikorsky S-38 ‘Osa’s Ark’.
