The Breitling Wingwalkers

Went to Duxford yesterday for the 2010 Flying Legends Airshow. An unexpected highlight was the terrific display by the Breitling Wingwalkers. Flying old Boeing Stearman biplanes, the women walking the wings and men flying the planes elicited comments from the crowd such as "Ooooh", "Ahhhh", and "Bloody Hell!"

    Excellent framing/cropping, they really seem to be bursting out of the picture with this tight composition.

  30. Ian D B says:

    Thanks very much everyone.

    This wasn’t a crop, I got lucky with the comp. Or unlucky; I couldn’t get the top of the loop quite in the frame quick enough. However, they are at Windermere next weekend, so I may try again…
