Hawker Sea fury, P-51 Mustang and U-2 spyplane

Very nice pictures Keith, I especially like the prop-planes;
+1 on the panning (where you can still count the rivets around the cockpit of the Mustang  8))

The P-51 certainly deserves a place in my personal favorites list, together with Spitfire and Mosquito - now what do they all have in common...? (Hint - it's made by Rolls-Royce and is called Merlin ;) ;D)

Hi Kieth.
I have a list of Hawker planes I'd love to see, Typhoon, Tempest and Fury, thanks for sharing the Fury, great looking plane, built on the if it looks right it probably is right philosophy, not a computer in sight!
Got to love the Mustang too!
Great panning on the prop planes too.
The U2, good shot, meh looking plane. (Only my opinion and I have nothing against anyone that likes it!)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Folks.
As promised, the last in the series from the Bournemouth Air Festival.  ;D
The Vampire Blue display team. Probably the most consistent formation flying I have seen, the spacing was so consistent that there could have been a tow rope between them!
Also note the subtle (and not so subtle) differences between the two variants.

Hi Click.
Thank you. I wasn't certain if that shot really worked or if it was too grey on grey.
I guess it works.  :)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Wiebe.
Thank you, and since you asked I wish for longer lenses and continuing good health to enable me to carry them around and hold them up to take pictures.  ;D

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Roo.
Thank you. Yes two quite different versions of the same plane, the two seater has little stub extensions of the tailplane to the outside of the booms plus the tail fins are somewhat different in profile, and not forgetting the completely different cockpits! :)

Cheers, Graham.

Very nice Graham.  Good to see the single and 2 seater variants flying together.
