Gazelle 50th Commemorative Fly-in – Middle Wallop, Hampshire – 8 April 2017

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Aerospatiale Gazelle helicopter a fly-in took place at the home of the Army Air Corps – who have used the Gazelle since 1974. The Gazelle first flew on 7th April 1967. Production continued until 1996 with around 1775 built, many of which are still in service today – including with the British and French military who sent examples to the event. Many civilian operators also brought examples, and aircraft associated with the type’s role also attended.

Abingdon Air & Country Show – 4 May 2014

The season-opening airshow at the old RAF base in Oxfordshire (now Dalton Barracks) is always an incredible achievement by the small volunteer team, and held in aid of the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust. The 2014 event suffered slightly from a few cancellations, but still managed to deliver a great show. The following is a pictorial record of the weekend, including the practices and arrivals on the Saturday 3 May and that evening’s night-shoot, which itself generated a very a welcome boost to the charity’s total.
