About this event

It gives us great pleasure to announce another exciting photographic event with two aircraft from the stunning Hangar 11 Collection based at North Weald Aerodrome, this time with Spitfire PR Mk XI PL965 and ‘Red Tail’ P51-D Mustang, Tall in the Saddle. Come with us as we re-create images that were once an everyday scene up and down the land during the 1940’s when the UK was fighting in the skies over the English Channel and mainland Europe. Add to this period re-enactors, props, lights, a few special effects and you have a wonderful mix of photographic opportunities.


Neither planes have featured in one of our night shoots for a couple of years and Tall in the Saddle has to date only featured in an event we hosted when the collection unveiled her. 


Our event will run from 17.00 through to 21.00 hours. The aircraft will both be positioned to ensure that the backdrop is authentic and devoid of modern buildings, and the 'planes will be spaced to allow them to be photographed separately. There will be two engine runs during the evening, one from each aircraft. In addition we have arranged for appropriately attired re-enactors, an American Jeep, army Harley Davidson motorcycle and a few other props to be on hand throughout the shoot.


The on site cafe will be open, serving hot food and drinks during the evening and there is a good chance Weald Aviation will make a number of other airframes available for photography adjacent to the Wings Café.


So come with us on a fully packed evening of Warbird photography just north of London and a few minutes off the M11, making it a very accessible location.
