Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Testing, Testing

Well, this is more than a little bit tricky! Some fantastic entries here, I love the more unusual stuff. There's quite a few aircraft here that I'd forgotten about and some I'd never heard of! Special mention to Peter R's QinetiQ 1-11, now that is a nice photo. However, I've picked my top three base...

The DH60 was parked quite close to the fence so required some tippy toes and just a touch of clone stamp right at t...
