    Fabulous .
    Highlight of the show for me !
    Compared to Sally B the Lancs bomb Bay is huge , very impressive .

    Lovely shot Ian.

  3. Mark McKie says:

    Superb image mate.

  4. Marc Melander says:

    Very elegant. I can hear the Merlins from here – the finest noise in aviation. Sweet light on the nose of the Lanc and Hurricane. With ref pasujoba’s comment re bomb bay – iirc the Grand Slam was a 20,000lb weapon although I think said weapon was slightly proud of a heavily modified bomb bay ? The B17 payload was tiny – I think the A10 could carry more and is a fraction of the size.

    really impressive seeing them in the air. I can imagine what it was like back in the forties.

    This must have made your heart skip a beat Ian.

    It must be so difficult to get a nice sharp shot like this one when they are moving so fast! I take it you had a great day?!

    Saw them yesterday at Blackpool. Fantastic to watch, took few photos as only took 24-70mm lens as was with friends. Will have an opportunity to catch again at Duxford on 5September, can not wait. Hope the light is as good as this.
