Members Day - West London Aero Club

A beautiful selection of old and new piston-engine aircraft graced the windy and overcast skies at White Waltham Airfield on Saturday as the West London Aero Club celebrated their Members Day.

de Havilland Tiger Moths took to the Berkshire skies in a display of precision in high winds!

G-BUCH Stinson V-77 Reliant gave a beautiful demonstration of its grace and power.

From Stinson's to Tiger Moths, Cherokees to Cubs, the display pilots showed us why they are the best of the best. Around a thousand spectators turned up to the beautiful Berkshire airfield to celebrate their members day. At White Waltham there are all kinds of  pilots from Airline Pilots to Student pilots, Acrobatic enthusiasts to old Warbird Pilots and they gave the spectators a trip down aviations history and majesty.

Close call for the Tiger Moth Display Team

Apart from the close flying displays of the de Havilland Tiger Moths we witnessed some exhilarating flybys from the flying club displays teams in their Slingsby Fireflys. And with a gusting 15 knot wind the flying looked a bit precarious at times!

The food on offer from Flying Food was top class with some excellent lunches on offer and a steady flow of tea and coffee kept the cold at bay!

At Off the Wall Photography and Printing we had the opportunity to design some promotional items at the show and first and foremost was a unique t-shirt design for Members day. WLAC were keen to keep the design quite retro and showing off the Bi-Planes which adorn the taxiways of the airfield. We added the "Born to Fly" and the idea literally took off!
