The Second World War air combat was large and varied, with doctrine still being established in most countries when the war began, a few such as Germany and Japan having settled on their tactical and strategic use of aircraft, bombers, fighters, transport and recon.
For the first time since the 1970's we saw WW2 aircraft make an appearance at the club (I myself as a teenager played WW2 airwar with Airfix and Matchbox 1/72 scale, there was also some Korean War MIG vs Sabre combat as well)
See below, hopefully we will see more.
From the July 2014 meeting the first 3 below:

|Ahh, the blue sea and open fields|

|2 Fw-190D's fly past a P-51D and a Spitfire IX, again|
