Jim & Click,

Thanks, the 109 is actually known as a Buchon and it's Spanish. That rascal Hitler sold 'em to Franco minus engines (ahh, what a gent, never buy a used car from a Nazi dictator, that's what I say). It wasn't until 1947 that we (the Brits) sold them Merlin engines to power them. It was weird to see a Spanish Buchon Bf109 painted in German colours (they had to get special permission to do so) and sounding like a Spitfire. I don't think there is an emoticon to describe all that.

Take care.

Beautiful picture... I would need extra underwear if I saw (and ear) that plane...

Guy 9343 and the 109 are rockin - nice work.

OT I know (I hope I don't get slammed for this) but news broke today that the CIA has finally admitted Area 51 is real: http://aerospacenews.com/area-51-is-real-says-cia/news/military-news/

Sharing 'cause there are more than a few avgeeks in this thread. :)

Pfff,  ::) Area 51 is the worst kept secret ever. That's where my mother met Elvis two years ago.

Scott - So how do you post more than 4 images at once?

If your images are on another site, you can use the image tag by using the first button on the second row. There is no limit then. His seem to be on Flickr...

I have to say I've never seen such good pictures from air shows as in this thread.

The Fairey Swordfish; what an aircraft that was. Flew so slowly the enemy fighters couldn't keep up.

Or should that be down  ;D

If only you could hear the noise too. Typhoons are about the loudest jets I've ever heard.

Love seeing these shots - I used to work on these for several years.

I'm no longer a designer and now work in management of an unrelated business that's all about customer  :-X and staff  :-X :-X relationships. Boy do I miss engineering  >:(
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

Mine are on Flickr - it even gives you the necessary BBCode to insert into your post on the forum so you can add them here.
As there is not storage impact on the forum I would imagine you can virtually insert as much as you like up to whatever the post character limit is.
The image quality is great too.

Guy - I see you seem to agree with me that the Typhoon display was the best of the day - for us photographers anyway.

:)
