Re: Aviation- On This Day

Super photo that Peter! Andy, I had to smile when I went round Le Bourget. For some reason I read the info in front of the Spitfire. Instead of saying "Supermarine Spitfire the world greatest fighter aircraft"! It says something along the line of " Supermarine Spitfire - as flown by free French Air ...

Perhaps the biggest seen in the 'raspberry ripple' scheme, BAC-111, at Greenham Common 1983. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50380333551_90c9a7d6f7_b.jpg its up there Norman, the Comet 4 from Farnborough is the holder of the record though.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: small in the frame

Hopefully it's been a different angle of subject. Lots of good ones to chose from but I'm going to narrow down to a top 3. 3) Thomasz's flare dropping Dutch F-16 2) Wrexham Machem's Venom (maybe a Vampire?) in a sunlit grey sky 1) Shaun's awesome first Typhoon shot at Dawlish - a study in heat haze!...

Re: Knights of the Sky exhibition, Omaka, New Zealand

You might be right on the originals Errol - Caproni was the only one I remembered.
Not my photos apart from the Hudson - they are Nuumannns! but agree they are great.

I went a few weeks ago and struggled to take much.

Re: Knights of the Sky exhibition, Omaka, New Zealand

Only the Caproni is real. Probably the best exhibit I thought was the cross from Richthofen's Triplane on the wall. As if it has been snatched from the diorama next to it. Sadly I could not get a shot of it with the lighting and behind glass. The WW2 museum next door is going to get a (new) revamp w...
