RAF B-25 Mitchell
Taken at 2008 Flying Legends Airshow at Duxford.
Seeing these planes always reminds me on "Catch 22". Beautiful aircraft and capture, clouds help make it.
Cheers Colin. I should watch that, tried reading the book but got fed up after 1/3 of way thru, though it must have made an impression; 15 years on, I can still recall some of the characters….
Ian, took your advice and had a look through his stream, he’s hundreds of planes on there!
Did a search for Mosquito on his photos and came across a colour photo of Max Aitkens red spinnered mossie at Banff during 1945, left a paragraph for him to give him some more detail!!
Such a great b/w! Thanks for the info – now I’ve asked Google about these stripes and learned again something .. (never to old to learn! 😉
Have a nice sunday!
Great shot Ian , plenty of mood from the clouds .
Wonderful moody shot, suits the subject perfectly….. excellent b/w conversion!!
That’s a lovely b&w right through from the grass to those clouds.Wonderful.
Nice mono treatment … it looks very in-period 1
Superb work Ian
Mmm. Nice vintagy shot. Makes me wanna say, "here’s lookin’ at you, kid." (Probably not even the same era or aircraft – but nostalgic all the same :D)
Excellent atmospheric shot Ian. Nice vision and aura
excellent my friend
You’re not far off. Certainly same era – early 40’s. The plane Humphrey Bogart watches Ingrid Bergman fly off in is a Lockheed Electra (or a model of one) Same type of plane featured in the new movie Amelia.

Yay! I’m not completely dunce-headed then. What a relief…
Perfect shot with the clouds hanging around
I think im right in thinking this B-25 has recently been sold to the US??
I don’t know, but I’ll take another look at recent Flypast mags, that’s usually the place to find stuff like that.
