    She is a grand looking old lady. Shame she doesn’t fly, but she no doubt deserves a rest. The wee guys in the cockpit give it some nice scale.

    There see …You got it with full blades blur Ian ! I never doubted you wouldnt 🙂 I like the bottom shot greatly …the angle is terrific and that sky really sets Jane off well ! Lancaster porn!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/25305713@N04] Cheers Wilf, it would be fun but at £300 a pop that’s too steep for me. More than take a ride, I’d just like to get on board and sit in some of the crew positions.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/amybigkiss] [http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_photo_boy] Thanks Amy, thanks Ant. Always good to see. As Paul says, it is Lancaster porn.

    As you say, it is a shame about that shed in the background. The second shot above I like a lot, the autumn trees add to it but the slightly out of synch outer starboard engine relegated it to second position! The third shot is ok, but I could have framed it better by taking a couple of steps back to fit the blades in properly.

    Thanks for you comments Paul.

    Very nice series Ian – and excellent prop blur! I do like the composition of the third photo – as Paul says, the pov and partially cloudy sky makes for a very interesting view.
