Thanks, Graham.

It was at Lydd in Kent.  Charlie Brown was on the ground, talking about Spitfires, but he didn't fly this one.  I'm afraid I can't remember the pilot's name.

Hi ajf.
First I would like to say I think it is a good picture for a couple of reasons, first the back story is fantastic, second the aircraft is pretty nicely exposed, and crisp enough to see the pilot waving most imprortant, the exhaust following a spiral course across and down the fuselage and that the pilot either had full right stick, unlikely, or full flaps so the chopper could keep up, more likely..
I hope you got a really good rate for your mother in law to do this as we owe so much to ladies like her who put themselves at risk to get the planes back in the air, often taking no more precaution than putting on their tin hat when most other civilians would be taking to a shelter, I'm pleased to hear that at the great age of 90 she was well enough to take to the air to see such a sight.
Do you know where it was done, and is the pilot called Charlie Brown?

Cheers Graham.

Hi ajf.
Thanks for that, funny thing is, I was looking through all my car show folders last night looking for pics of a friend, and found some pics of this aircraft with I think Charlie Brown on the ground at an airshow at Sandown Isle of Wight where we also had a car display. I spent a while talking to Charlie Brown about Spitfires, and found him to be a very pleasant person to chat with, he also showed interest in our cars, we got talking about our Spitfire, of the Triumph variety and how they advertised the car with "the Spitfire". He said that if we could get permission from the airfield he would love to recreate the add with us, needless to say I couldn't find anyone from the airfield with the authority to allow this!
I intend to post some of my pics to various posts if I can work out an easy way without having to resize every image.

Cheers Graham.

Hi Folks.
Well I threatened to post some, I am in awe of some of your pictures, looking down on Hercules, out the back of a tanker at the drogue, out the front of a jet at the tanker and drogue.
So here are my efforts.

Looking forward to this event at the start of March :D  100 years as a continuously operating military airbase is a pretty significant achievement.

Here are some from the Centenary of Military Aviation in Australia at the weekend.  The first flight was at Point Cook (RAAF Williams)  by a Bristol Box Kite on March 2 1914 at 7.40am.  The flight was replicated on Saturday but not open to the public (damn!).  Pt Cook is the oldest continuously operating air base in the world although these days it is mostly a museum.

It wasn't a great day for shooting with the light very flat and dark grey skies.

In the photos - Sopwith Pup, Stinson and Beechcraft Staggerwing.  CAC Mustang (Australian built version).   Roulettes Aerobatics team's PC9s.

Hi Roo.
Lovely series of pictures, good subjects, nice framing and crisp focus. I guess the Tamron is ok then!

Cheers Graham.

Thanks Graham!  The Tammy has answered every question I've asked of it so far.  That wasn't great light to shoot in at the weekend but it still pulled it off
