Evening folks,

Many thanks for the kind comments on my last two threads, it's very much appreciated! Makes the hard work getting the images worth while when other folk enjoy them as much as I do!

I had a request to post some of my images of the RAF's very own Battle of Britain Memorial Flight so it would be rude not to put some up! No apologies for this being very Lancaster heavy but I do also acknowledge that I'm missing an important member of the team, the DC-3! I will dig out some of what I have of her and post them later.

Many thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy.

Cheers,
Andy

15. I'll finish off with a new display that came on the scene in 2008 to celebrate the RAF's 90th Anniversary (or should I say resurrection - has been done previously with the Tornado F.3). I'm glad the RAF has kept the routine going as it is one of my favourites!
BBMF Spitfire vs. Typhoon.

Absolutely superb! As a frequent visitor to Coningsby, and former Duxford denizen, I applaud your expertise! thumbsup

Awesome pictures. The sound of the Spitfires and Hurricanes flying overhead always sends a chill up my spine.

This reminds me to keep looking for a decent camera upgrade. My Nikon L22 just doesn't cut it... wink

Stunning. I have just properly calibrated my 32" LCD and the Lancaster which is very hard to expose correctly is perfect.
