A new airshow to Planes TV’s portfolio for 2010 was Dunsfold Wings and Wheels. Dunsfold is a unique show combined some great historic vehicles and supercars with a top class flying display. The show held at the end of August is currently the only airshow held in Surrey and is a very popular local events.
It attracts a wide range of different displays from warbirds through to modern day front line jets and the ultimate aerobatic aircraft. 2010 saw the event expand to a two event for the first time, a sign of the event’s growing popularity. The flying side of the show takes in a number of displays covering Dunsfold and Surrey’s aviation history with acts such as the Red Arrows, RAF Hawk and Harrier and Hunter taking starring roles in the flying. 2010 saw mostly good weather for the two day event which made for excellent filming conditions.
The production is introduced and narrated by Melvyn Hiscock who provides an informative and sometimes humorous commentary. As well as the flying, there a superb section covering all the two and four wheeled action from the event. As you would expect, the flying display footage is second to none. Sopme outstanding highlights include the unique formation of Peter Teichman’s Hawker Hurricane and Jonathan Whalley’s Hawker Hunter, some extended Harrier coverage and some superb onboard footage from the Matadors display.
Overall, this is excellent production with some outstanding on-board footage – some of the best we’ve seen.
