Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
Supermarine Spitfire P7350
Avro Lancaster PA474
Hawker Hurricane PZ865
Highlight of the show for me !
Compared to Sally B the Lancs bomb Bay is huge , very impressive .
Lovely shot Ian.
Superb image mate.
Very elegant. I can hear the Merlins from here – the finest noise in aviation. Sweet light on the nose of the Lanc and Hurricane. With ref pasujoba’s comment re bomb bay – iirc the Grand Slam was a 20,000lb weapon although I think said weapon was slightly proud of a heavily modified bomb bay ? The B17 payload was tiny – I think the A10 could carry more and is a fraction of the size.
really impressive seeing them in the air. I can imagine what it was like back in the forties.
Wonderful to see these flying. Another display at Fairford this weekend …
Great to see these old flying machines in such a good light! And still flying!!
brill shot mate yes its it great to them up flying would loved to go to fairford at the weekend but its the wife’s birthday ?……but one day one day
Cracking shot mate, always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end when I see these.
This must have made your heart skip a beat Ian.
It must be so difficult to get a nice sharp shot like this one when they are moving so fast! I take it you had a great day?!
Such superb pictures Ian!!!
What a fantastic scene !
Glorious scene, one that makes the hair stand on end.
Wow! This is superb! Fantastic capture! %-)
My Dad’s cousin flew on the Lancaster Bombers in WW II.
It’s so interesting to see all these old planes you have captured! %-)
Hi, I’m an admin for a group called british aircraft & aviation, and we’d love to have this added to the group!
thanks for the group invites! a group worth joining.
Looking forward to seeing the BBMF on Sunday at Blackpool together with the Red Arrows – hope the rain holds off 🙂
Saw them yesterday at Blackpool. Fantastic to watch, took few photos as only took 24-70mm lens as was with friends. Will have an opportunity to catch again at Duxford on 5September, can not wait. Hope the light is as good as this.
