R4118 Photography Day: the pictures say it all


If the pictures are anything to go by, it seems this year’s R4118 Photographer Day was a resounding success.

The event was hosted by our good friend and professional aviation photographer Darren Harbar, who shared practical advice and helpful tips with 15 budding photographers.


Huge thanks to Shuttleworth for making WWII era vehicles available for our Battle of Britain pilot to pose with.



Plans for next year’s Photography Day are already afoot. Watch this space!

During the day, visitors flocked to the Hurricane Heritage pop-up shop, where a range of R4118-themed merchandise was launched for the first time. Merchandise will shortly be available in our online Shop.
