PICTURE GALLERY: Vampire Jet at Sywell

There were aircraft enthusiasts a plenty at Sywell for the visit of a historic plane.

A 1952 De Havilland Vampire jet was visiting the aerodrome and was an impressive sight.

Former Telegraph chief photographer Glyn Dobbs, who took these pictures, said: “It was very impressive with flames from its jet when starting and was a complete contrast to the airport’s usual light aircraft.”
