Gloster Javelin XH897
Photographed at Duxford.
Nice pov Ian… great symmetry.
fantastic selective, sweet tight frame, amazing colour and perspective!
it has a pointy thing at the front and it’s red so it must be fast … o and there’s no props either 😉
It always feels like something is watching meee
Cracking perspective Ian!
i’d have been proud of this,mate..hope its not raining NEXT week-end..!
Very good unusual view Ian – did you get your flight yet?
Many thanks everyone, and [http://www.flickr.com/photos/16575476@N03] thanks again for the heads-up about the comments thing being turned off Mick.
Hi Bryan, not yet, it’ll probably be late Summer before I get back down that way.
Yeah this was used for test fights I think, hence the funky paint scheme.
striking colours and pod
cracking photo ian ,
Great paint job and a jolly good shot!
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/maycontaintracesofnuts] ahh. wow, that would make a test pilot feel ultra special … easier to distinguish in the air i guess .. or otherwise. am i being a bit dark? possibly yes.
This is a striking image… The colors just make it look like its flying right at ya…
Very cool. Very striking.
man brilliant image nice work with the pp ian
Great composition. I like the selective colour, it works fine here.
With such painting scheme this aircraft could be used in "BiaÅ‚o-Czerwone Iskry" team 🙂
very bold composition Ian. Nicely done.
Great use of selective colour Ian, makes me think of a circus tent!
Looks very different from this angle ….thought it was an umberrella at first !
Looks like soemthing Flash Gordon might get into.
a tube of Colgate with wings
I love it!
Nice pov ian – do you know I actually saw this fly in 1968 when it was Boscombe based with their test fleet! Sadly I didn’t have a camera back then 🙂
Really? Ah well. You will have to make do with my manipulated effort!
