The British Aerospace airfield at Woodford in Greater Manchester is the legendary home of Avro and their June airshow always presents an exciting line up. This year, Avro's history was well presented and included the Avro 504 - the first aircraft ever to make a planned bombing mission. Avro's most famous bombers are also included - the Vulcan (its 25th Birthday display at Woodford in 1990) and the Lancaster, featuring the event surrounding its emotional poppy-drop for the V.J. celebrations.
Pride of Place however goes to Woodford's current success story - the R.J. Avroliner. We have a camera on the flightdeck during its display. This video is simply packed with exciting action, but the show stars for many were the "Russian Test Pilots" and their awesome Sukhoi Su 27 Flankers.
