These 87 Squadron Gladiator performed tied-together aerobatics close enough for an ordinary camera in the enclosure to record the centre aircraft as K8027 (which casts doubts on the year, since 87 Sq officially didn't receive K8027 till 7Sep1937) ... further research required ! K8027 crashed landing at Benina, Libya in July 1943
