Comment - Unbelievably, for a warbird enthusiast, I had not been to a Flying Legends show since 2013, although I have attended many other warbird-heavy shows at the IWM. The lure of RIAT and a feeling that Legends had become quite predictable with just tailchases and the balbo plus other commitments meant that I didnít make the journey. On the surface of it, the 2019 show was not the best to make a return either! Gloomy weather didnít help but there were none of the Ďspecial surprisesí that had graced earlier shows, the two US based P-51 Mustangs owned by Dan Friedkin flying out to Biggin Hill on the Friday before the show for reasons unpublicised. Additionally, the post-Shoreham regulatory framework has reduced some of the excitement and spectacle that was possible previously, as well as reducing the amount of high-energy topside passes so loved by photographers.

However, this is where a reality check does need to be made. Where else in Europe are you going to see 12 Spitfires, 5 Buchons, a 24 warbird balbo, A Bearcat, 2 Sea Fury's, P-47 etc being displayed at one venue? The bar has been set very high in previous years, but on the face of it, Legends is still the premier warbird show in Europe.
