Little Rissi’ Airshow 1972

Big thanks to David Harrison for finding these photos on the net. I contacted Mike Rose, who was very happy for me to use them. His FB page is here.

Spot how many types you can see. Remarkable to see a Mosquito and the Swordfish.

    1. Yes, though they were taken by my friends at the time, so could you put their names to the photos please? 🙂

  1. John. Two ways – send them to me and I can upload themt. Or I register you to post in your own name. Let me know your choice please.

  2. To bad there aren’t any photos of the air show in 1982. All the bases were having their shows. So, we decided to have a show at Little Rissington except that we called our show Open Hanger Day and it was held on April 1st of that year. We had on display 2 250 bed airèvac packages … in boxes of course. We also had several forklifts and a display of precision driving. Our wives baked cookies and we invited the entire contigent of PSA employees and the contractors. I also managed to arrange a flyover by a classmate from Air War College in an F111. We broke so many rules and customs that I was forbidden from doing it again.

  3. Eric, good to hear about this. Someone must have some pictures of the event. Bet the Aardvark scarred the wives! 🙂
