I'm fairly certain that the first picture is not a B-24 Liberator but an Avro Lancaster.  The cockpit glass is not correct for the B-24, the B-24 did not have a Gun turrent on the top in the main body, and the 4 engines in the picture are Rolls Royce Merlins which were on the Lancaster. If you Google B-24  Liberator pictures and Avro Lancaster pictures you can see the difference.

In any event great looking pictures.


There's no dooubt its a Lanc, http://www.raf.mod.uk/bbmf/theaircraft/lancasterphanofruhr.cfm

Yes, you are right. I took the pictures 3 years ago and I've forgot what it was. Now when you mention it I see it's pretty obvious since the plane has brittish markings, not american.

Really love to see all the great war plane photos in this post. Here's some photos I took a couple of years ago at the Flying Legends airshow in Duxford, England.

Great series ankarback. I especially like the 3rd one.

...And welcome to CR  :)

Thanks!

If she's a pilot then I think some airforces have taken a lax view on safety. Those heels would not be suitable in an emergency situation.

I'm suitably disgusted.

Looks like she is a stewardess. ::) If she does during a flight, can crash the plane. :P

I guess I shouldn't post the other airshow babe shot.  It's much worse.

Good light, bad light:

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

how badly out of focus could it be? :D

Great shots btw :)

Not an airshow as such but some shots from last weekend's Australian F1 Grand Prix.

Hi Keith. 
Now you know it's not nice to tease people, you can't leave dozens of minds wondering what can be so bad, if it's really bad you may need a NSFW rating!  ;)
So come on stop teasing and show us.... Pulease! ;D
BTW nice set of pics, thanks.

Cheers Graham.
