Concorde and the Red Arrows flying in formation just moments before their flight along The Mall during the Golden Jubilee Flypast (4 June 2002) The EA300S is a modern aerobatic aircraft. This one was displaying over Burn airfield in Yorkshire to celebrate the 60th anniversary of 578 Squadron (which flew heavy bombers during WW2)

Here's the EA300S on the ground, pilot, 5 times British aerobatic champion, Mark Jeffries having completed his display.

The Miles Magister was a favourite training aircraft during the 1930s. It had a wooden airframe covered with plywood. Many WW2 pilots first learned to fly in  a Magister. This one, flown by  Geoff Cline, was restored in the 1980s and is used for flying displays. Gliders have no engines. They are towed into the air behind a small powered plane or are catapulted into the air by a winch. Gliders are easily recognised by their long wings, which are necessary to provide enough lift for a slow moving aircraft.

This modern passenger jet (If you know what sort it is perhaps you could let me know?) was caught as it lifted out of Heathrow Airport. The Supermarine Spitfire was one of the most famous aircraft of WW2. This replica of a Type 1a Spitfire is at The Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington. Helicopters do not have wings. They get lift from the rotor blades. The tail rotor stops the helicopter from rotating in the opposite direction to the rotors. 2 views of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster bomber in the air over Yorkshire on the afternoon of 6th May 2006. 7377 Lancasters were built during WW2, and between them flew 156,000 operations. A Lancaster crew usually consisted of 7 men. 3249 Lancasters were lost in combat and only 17 are still known to exist (according to Wikipedia). Of these only 2 are still airworthy. This is one of them. You can see another view of this plane on Google Earth. It was "caught"  flying over Huntingdon
