1931 – 2011 The Schneider Trophy Commemorated over Calshot

I cannot describe the commemoration flights at Calshot yesterday afternoon better than the BBC. If you follow the link below you will see footage from yesterday’s flights, when sea planes flew over the Solent and landed on the famous spit at Calshot.

You will also see remarkable footage of the famous victory flight in 1931 when Britain won the Schneider Trophy.
