THE FIREFLIES

We're delighted that John Gowdy and Andy Durston are to make their Old Buckenham debut this year.  Seasoned aerobatic experts (and in John's case also an airline pilot) they're going to show off one of the hardest skills in the sky; formation aerobatics. When they're not flying in their lightweight, highly manoeuvrable and hand built Van's RV4's they can be seen piloting massively powerful WWII warbirds as part of the Ultimate Fighters Group. When you have access to 1000 hp warbirds, it says something about the RV4 that they'll gladly put up with  a 80% reduction in power to take to the sky, upside down a few feet from each other.
