    okay — why the bulls eyes under the wings?

    They’re identification mark Sonja. To be precise, it’s an RAF Type A roundel. So anti-aircraft gunners would know that the aircraft above is one of the good guys. Unless it was over occupied Europe, in which case the gunner might have a different point of view. After the war, the Royal Canadian Air Force had a red maple leaf at the centre of their roundels.

    Yeah, this is Legends Tim. Need to add some tags, thanks for the reminder.

    An absolutely classic pose of the beautiful Hurricane.

    When I was a kid the Hurri was my favourite plane, moreso than the Spitfire ‘cos it looked sturdy and tough … which it was 🙂

    Ah, the good old Hurricane, the mainstay aircraft of the Battle of Britain but usually overlooked for the good looks of the Spitfire. A beautiful aircraft and excellent capture.

    Thanks again. Hopefully next time I go to an airshow, there won’t be so many ground shots.
