Lovely set, some of the emotion of the day caught well...

Another vote for the scramble shot.

Fantastic stuff, looks very evocative and well thought out. I wonder if ground crew wore high vis vests in 1940 :grin:

Some nice shots there matey and the scramble shot is fantastic. I'm very jealous. ( Love the two below 'the goggles' too... They are, after all, what it is all about )

You managed the shot I was after with the 'hot' griffon. I was stood next to the Spirit of Kent and just got clouds of smoke... :lol: Unfortunately, that was where my shooting ceased as I ended up just soaking up the sight and sounds. The noise of 20+ merlins and a griffon or two was just immense and worth the entrance fee alone.

Great shots for a great day despite the rubbish lighting conditions which were horrible.
I'm intrigued, just how did a P-51 get into the formation - was that being used as a camera ship?

Yes, the Mustang was a camera ship. Kev Wills, of Dawlish Airshow fame was in the back seat. There was also an Aztec in the air with one of the other formations.
