Rougham Air Display and Classic Car Show 2009

Despite being sited once again to one side of the overflow car park, the weather was reasonable, especially on Sunday however we found that despite having a number of Military exhibits opposite, the few members of the public who wandered to the end of the Military tended to turn round and walk back without coming across to look at the Engines.

Having said that it is a good event for the public with lots to see, and the Flying was superb.

Here are some of the engines and some shots of the Aircraft.

Spitfire and a P51 Mustang Mustang Sally B Spitfire on the ground
A Spitfire and a P51 Mustang, unfortunately I cut the nose of the Spit, my excuse? they were doing a very low level pass at about 250 knots, BRILLIANT. Another shot of the Mustang Rougham was a B17 Base during WW11 so it was fitting that Sally B flew over. Here is a shot of a Spitfire on the ground.
