This was taken on the Saturday of 2012's Flying Legends at Duxford. I was waiting on the Tank Bank for an occasion just like this! It didn't happen on the Sunday, I think the pilot may have been advised not to do it again?

Welcome to EPZ Paul.

An excellent shot with good propeller detail. Spoiled to some extent by an unnecessarily large logo, - you can make it smaller, or learn how to make them hidden, - the best approach.

Enjoy the site,



Regards



Willie

Welcome to the site. Excellent shot, with pleasant amount of movement, definitiveldetail and beautiful positioning of the subject. Do I get correctly from the data that you used a x1.4 teleconverter?

Great photo and welcome to epz! You have done well to get the propeller blurred and the plane sharp.
But I can only agree with above, the logo spoils it.

Beautiful shot of a Spitfire MK XVIII or Mk XXI with the Griffon rather than the Merlin engine. I really like the close crop highlighting the underside radiators and the main gear. Nice blurred prop as well. Great Shot.
