    this one is fabulous in the sepia tones — the edges are perfect also — really added to the shot… the cream of the wings.. super shot.

    This (type) was my very first flight on the Isle of White. I love the closeness to the pilot and the fact that you could see everything that was going on. Nicely captured Ian

    You have an image worthy of preservation!

    I think it was this aircraft that was up the Inverness area maybe a couple of months back to celebrate the postal link between Kirkwall and Inverness "so many years back". I am friendly with one of the organisers who showed me various pictures of this aircraft during its flight (he was able to pilot it as well for a while) and was also able to come home with a limited edition letter, carried on this aircraft on its re-enactment flight between the islands, for me.

    The sepia hue suits the period feel for the aircraft, nice.

    It’s great to keep the history alive. These are lovely old birds, designed in 1933 (wikipedia) but still in commercial use well into the sixties

    I’d love to take a trip on one too! One of these days…

    Check out http://www.classicflight.com – they have 3 of these beauties, airworthy and available for trips in from their Coventry base.

    Yeah, they’re not too dear. I’m certainly more likely to be taking a trip in one of these than a Mustang for the foreseeable. Unless I get that lottery win.
