Ryan PT-22 Recruit, 2nd August 2009

Another recording of the pair of PT-22 Recruits based at Old Warden. I was contact by a guy from the US who actually flies one of these in his spare time asking for me to send him some recordings, which of course I have. The PT-22 Recruit was the first trainer aircraft to be used […]

Hawker Sea Hurricane & Mk1 Hurricane Display

Some interesting information linking these two machines from the […]

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 […]
