That war is family history - two of my uncles fought in it. So I've been reading about these planes since forever, but I've never seen one fly. Unless you count Tom Hardy.

And the biplanes! That's the duct-tape-and-baling-wire age of aviation! I'm looking forward to it.

Planes indeed went zoom and whoosh, the wing walkers didn't fall off, and Spitfires are very impressive planes! Also holy crap the aerobatics - I mean loops and barrel rolls I expected, but, like, flat spins? Tumbling stalls? Flying sideways? The little I know about flying just makes those moves even more terrifying.

Pictures will follow, if any turned out (planes are hard! they keep, like, moving around!), after I get home.

@anne @hollyamory@mspsocial.net holy shit! These are amazing!

@pandora_parrot @hollyamory@mspsocial.net the air show was fun!

There's actually quite a lot of general aviation in the north of the Netherlands, small planes and gliders. And of course the warbirds mean something to the Dutch.
