It's not in DTs log book so it must have been Paul Millikin.

That was certainly a 'full-fat' display the likes of which haven't been reproduced since the XH558 has been outside the auspices of the RAF & the CAA have been determining safe manoeuvre capabilities.  Gosh that must have taken immense skill, concentration & experience!

Sadly, in the aftermath of Shoreham, I don't think that the public will be treated to such an impressive sight ever.

Not unless the last flight includes a display over the sea... Hint hint to anyone in charge ;-)
