Fighting in the skies - Post yours
1

This time last year I attended my first airshow with a camera (the E500 in this case and 70-300).  I posted some images in full colour not long after.  Now after an exhaustive effort to find the folder on my hard drives I decided to present a few of those images in Pre WW B&W.

My brothers hobby. He owns and flies the Tiger Moth, The Stampe Bi-plane and the Fieseler Fi 156 Storch. Took these photo's while on a visit to my family in South Africa at the beginning of this month.

Wow! and you got to see the only Mosquito flying in the world before it was shipped to the States.  Awesome.

Here is a variety of mine.

The same Mosquito

accompanied by a B-25 Mitchell and a Lancaster, practicing the day before an airshow in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, June 2013.  It was amazing to hear all those big piston engines.

I love the shots of the Bi-wings.

Here's a non-Bi-wing

God Bless,

That's a fine livery of vintage aircraft.  Really like the composition in all but that Tiger Moth shot is so cool.

Re: Few of mine.

Yes George that Mozzie was a delight to see and a credit to our restorers/rebuilders here.  Thanks for posting yours too, I just knew you'd have a few

Another of the Mosquito in the air.

Re: The same Mosquito

Now there is a very interesting selection of aircraft.  I knew some Lancasters were still flying but have never seen a B25 ever in photographs.

Now that is a very fine image Greg.  Sharp as a tack and great composition.

Re: The same Mosquito

I had wanted to attend that show but had to do something else that weekend and missed it.  Maybe this year!

Re: Few of mine.

Another good set of vintage aircraft images.  OT but I used PS and the magnetic lasso for the first time yesterday, so thanks for that!

Re: Goodyear ZNPK-28 Blimp Control Car

Now that is something completely different and completely... well.... off the blimp!!  Great find and image.  Works very nicely in B&W.
