Duxford Battle of Britain Airshow- Saturday

Postby Seamus on Wed 27 Sep 2017, 6:51 pm

Evening all,

Here's my selection of images from a terrific show at Duxford on Saturday. Arguably a finer line up than Legends, it was a truly superb way to see out my airshow season. Conditions were tricky for photography with flat light throughout most of the day, with the sun only making an appearance after the flying had ceased, as is so often the way! As a result, the images aren't the most exciting in the world, but hopefully of interest nevertheless.

Outstanding work, the Spitfire landing shot with another Spit in the background is timeless - very nicely done
