Last weekend saw the first ever Flying Heritage Collection Skyfair take flight. This was a spectacular aviation event at the Flying Heritage Collection at Paine Field in Everett, Washington with some of the most legendary aircraft of World War Two including a Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vc, Messerschmitt Bf-109E, North American P-51B and D Mustangs, a Vought F4U Corsair, Lockheed P-38 Lightning, Grumman F7F Tigercat, North American B-25J Mitchell, a Fieseler Fi 156 Storch and the worlds only flying Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik (look for a future post with more photos of this mighty aircraft).
I cannot begin to put into words how great a day this was for my friends and I (along with everyone else there) but I think the photos give you a pretty good idea! This first ever show was very well-organised and a huge success for all. The weather was perfect and the flight displays were fantastic! A lot of credit has to go to the organisers and pilots alike for putting on one hell of a display!
Something particularly special about the Skyfair was the and unique flight formations we were fortunate enough to see. The following is a sneak peek. An upcoming post will have more photos of what we were blessed to experience on the day!
Given the success of this first show I cant wait to see it become an annual event. One not to be missed!
