Goodwood Revival 20 Glorious Years – Just a few of my recollections

Goodwood Revival 20 Glorious Years

My Goodwood Revival playlist contains footage from some of those I attended:

If you’ve never been the the Revival before, here are a few tips for you:

In this video I reflect on twenty glorious years of the Goodwood Revival.

The Revival is many things to many people. Some attend primarily for the class cars. Some for the vintage bikes. Some attend to watch vintage aircraft flying. And some for the vintage fashion.

For others it’s not one thing that draws them, It’s the whole atmosphere of celebration and joy. For anyone who has attended even only once, this event needs no introduction.

I can’t remember exactly the first year I attended. I have video footage from 2002 but I’m fairly certain I was there before that.

I may not be able to claim attendance at all twenty Revivals but it’s somewhere in the high teens.

This footage I recorded in 2002 shows how the aircraft taking part in the air displays used to park in front of the Aero Club clubhouse.

There would be a barrier in the fence, manned by a suitably uniformed guard, checking badges of those who approached.

You could walk all around the many Spitfires, Mustangs, and other aircraft, and chat to the pilots who flew them.

At the 2006 Revival I was admiring the line-up when a pilot very kindly invited me to sit in the cockpit of the Mk.Vb Spitfire EP120 (G-LFVB), known as “City of Winnipeg”.
