With current "events", almost all of the air shows I would normally attend have obviously been canceled. However, I found out that RIAT (Royal International Air Tattoo) are going ahead with a virtual version of their normal air display. This will be comprised of some recorded footage from previous air days, live digital performances of flight simulator pilots and exclusive videos of military aviation. I am unsure as to how many historical aircraft will make an appearance, but it still looks like an event not to be sniffed at. I thought I would post it here, just in case anyone else might be interested.

 

It will be live streamed on the 18th and 19th (this Saturday and Sunday) on YouTube and Facebook, from 11am-3pm. (BST I think)

Notice an ad in the August issue of FlyPast magazine (BoB special) ; despite the pandemic Duxford Air show is still on, it seems.

I know, fingers crossed on that one! My camera has been giving me some dirty looks, as I haven't taken it out In a while.

(Great to hear I'm not the only one who reads Flypast.)

Their Battle Of Britain airshow in September is a 3 day event, Fri-Sun. Limited numbers of tickets and (I think) staggered arrival times.

 

They also have 2 'showcase' days in August. These are days where, weather permitting, you pay normal non-airshow entrance fee to the museum but there is a mini-display in the afternoon for about 2 hours. Tickets must be booked in advance.

 

The Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire hosted their first airshow of the year on Saturday just gone. This was a drive in affair, with strict zones for people to park in and stay around their car. Each zone had toilet and refreshment stalls available, but the hangers and museum displays were closed. Reviews for it have been overwhelmingly positive from what I've seen. I believe they charged £50 per car which is of course quite steep for a single punter but if there are 2 or more of you then, imo, its a very good deal. Motorcyclist zones may have been discounted.

Hangar 10 on the island of Usedom (Germany) is an insider tip for everyone who loves warbirds. Its a Museum with an interesting collection.

A Spitfire with a bubble canopy?  That's late period.  I think the first operational Spitfires with bubble canopies were introduced in 1944.  The "razor/high back" fuselage design wasn't finally abandoned until, I think, the Mark 22 and up.

The cut-down rear fuselage and bubble canopy, trialled on a Spitfire Mk VIII, was incorporated into very late production Mk IXs. Late production IX is, as you say, somewhen in 1944, though the trial VIII could've been in 1943.
