Lots of great pics people,
Rex, great shots of a mighty impressive plane, I need to ask how low overhead was it when it passed over you for the third shot, coming in to land or taking off, did you have to duck?
This problem basically went away for years but returned on planes like the Spitfire and ME109, but in these instances it was pure torque (well maybe a just a little gyroscopic progression) combined with their extremely narrow undercarriage.
Biplane does look good in b/w.
Did you know those planes had the whole engine spin with the propeller? That's why they crashed so easily on takeoff. Too much gyroscopic effect, then if they turned the wrong direction, they just went into a spin.
Thanks, interesting information.
Old biplane looks always good in B&W. Well done philmoz.
