A fantastic image, full of history and nostalgia. I think the image may be worthy of a tinted monochrome makeover, in order to give that timeless quality.

I'm envious! I shot a Swordfish many years back, but not on a sunny day.

I don't know why - but the Swordfish is a particulalry evocative aeroplane: maybe because it was out of its time, a big, slow biplane fighting in a much faster world. I cannot begin to understand the level of courage that flying a combat mission in one must have taken.

Thanks Dudler, I agree a very slow aircraft, it's amazing that any got through to their targets. Must have had nerves of steel.
