Ah! great to see photos of the Blades, missed them this year. Really like the SE0A4798_DxO shot, nice angle for that part of their display.

Regards

Hi Folks.
Don't worry, I'm approaching the end of the Bournemouth Air Festival shots. Only a couple of sets left now.  :)
So soon I can bore you with the Goodwood Revival Airshow shots!  :o ;D
Some shots of the Hurricane.

Don't think this Decca radar was being used for vectoring the Hurricane on to enemy aircraft.  :)

Sorry to hear that Bournemouth photo-stream is approaching its end - but good that you still have another set to share ;)
Now that Erik is taking a sabbatical  ;D we need someone else to keep up the thread-volume ...

Although the Hurricane was a very successful and capable aircraft, I like the shape / lines of the Spitfire better. Also a pity that we hardly see the Mosquito / Hornet flying anymore; I guess there are too few left?  :-\

Keep up your great work Graham!

I love the shape of the Hurricane it's an acquired taste!   ;D
My absolute total favourite aircraft of all time is without doubt the Mosquito (Short Sunderland 2nd, F16 third) I've only ever seen the Mossi fly at Strathallan in the late 70s early 80s, just wonderful, and pilots could get away with flying a 'little' bit closer and a 'little' bit lower than today certainly at that airfield anyway!

Here's a vid I found on youtube of the very aircraft on a very sad day.

I have some film stills of it in the hanger somewhere must dig them out. Access in those days was really cool too!

One Mosquito returned to the air last year and there are a few Mosquitos under restoration/construction, especially in NZ where I think there are about 4 in various stages of being returned to flying condition.  The RAAF Museum has been restoring one here but I don't think it will be returned to flying status.  There has been a UK project around for a awhile called the Peoples Mosquito but it's still looking for funding and a competing trust has recently been set up.

Hi Wiebe.
Thank you.
Fixed part of your post, see red bit! ;D
The Hurricane is the ugly sister, but due to the fabric construction it was much easier to keep serviceable and it could reputedly take more 'punishment' than the Spitfire but we are all a sucker for beauty aren't we!
There are no Mosquito's / Hornets flying this side of the Atlantic to my knowledge, I think some time ago the CAA declared them all unsafe due to degradation of the glue holding them together (what I remember please correct me if wrong!).

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Zim.
I agree with the first two of your top 3, but could easily find many alternatives to the F16!
Thanks for the link, I managed to "waste" 30 mins or more watching Mossie videos! Part way through the video there is a shutter, wind-on sound, one of two things will happen the first time I see a Mossie fly, 10fps until the buffer slows it down or I won't be able to see clearly through tearful eyes!  ;D
Have a look at the TSETSE MKXVIII footage, incredible.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi VB,
I wish I could go back with a 1dx2 be 100-400L and photograph it coming up over the 'bump'. My abiding memory is of just two huge disks coming towards me. I'd also need a gimble to capture a full disk!  ;D

Thanks for the link, the de Havilland museum is a must go but I've never managed to (yet!) The tsetse stories are fantastic

Yeah the 16 would seem a strange choice but there is just something about the lines and proportions that have always got me. (How the EE Lighting isn't in my top 3 I'll never know though  ;D )

Maybe I should just do top ten!

Regards
