Hawker Sea Hurricane & Mk1 Hurricane Display

A Mark 1 Hurricane and Sea Hurricane displaying in formation. Not something you see or hear everyday! The Sea Hurricane is operated by the Shuttleworth Collection and the MK1 Hurricane (R4188) is a Battle of Britain veteran aircraft. More information about R4188 is available from here. Some interesting information linking these two machines from the […]

Supermarine Spitfire PR.11 PL965/R

This Merlin engined Spitfire PR.11 PL965 (G-MKXI) turned up at Old Warden at the weekend and did a fantastic display. The sound I recorded starts with the aircraft looping over the field and then a fast flyover right on axis with my mic setup. Another one of the great aircraft at Hanger 11, North Weald. […]

Seafire, Sea Hurricane, Corsair, Wildcat

This recording was taken using minidisc and an AT-822 so dynamics are limited to […]

Supermarine Spitfire MK XVI

This Spitfire MK XVIE CBAF.IX.4262 (G-OXVI) was recorded in 2008 at the Little Gransden Airshow, UK. Not too sure about these later mark Spitifires but a little research would indicate this a Packard built Rolls-Royce Merlin. If anyone can confirm this, I’d appreciate it. This aircraft is operated by Spitfire Ltd. There’s quite a bit […]

Hawker Sea Hurricane 3rd May, 2009

This is a recording made at Old Warden on 3rd May of their resident Hawker Sea Hurricane. This is a longer recording than I usually post and has a bit of work applied to it – a windy day. The Hurricane is still filling in for the finale their whilst the spit is undergoing an […]

Both were recorded from the flight line and were taken on separate occasions. The Sea Hurricane is a ‘navalised’ version of the standard Hawker Hurricane.
