CHESHIRE FLYER E-ZINE: FEBRUARY 2021


How cool is that? David Cyster in his Tiger Moth alongside (ish) a Lightning.


David tells me this photo was "Taken by a mate in another light aircraft close to my base in 1973 at RAF Wattisham when I was with 29 Squadron. The Sqn Boss was flying the Lightning with flaps down at minimum speed (140kts). I was at max speed at 2000ft (approx. 75kts ) and the ‘passing’ photo taken rather well by the photographer. A perfect demonstration of angle of attack for an aerofoil. Published in Roger Bacon’s column in Flight International. Happy Hooligan Days!"
