Award Shortlist   

In the cold seat

By javam    
A second upload from yesterday's Flying Legends display at Duxford.

The wing walkers are always a highlight at any show imho. Speaking as someone who does not like to get in an airplane, it amazes me than anyone would decide to strap themselves to the outside of one.

Probably back to warbirds tomorrow, but cannot promise there will not be more of these too.

Hope you had good weekends and as always, thanks for looking.

Neil

Wow and wow again!

I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased when the email about the EC came through, two in a row was a good feeling on its own, but to get the POTW was a shocker.

Thanks Pete, what a great way to start the week!

Thanks also for your comments all, always appreciated.

Thanks again.

Sorry, my workflow and template makes auto exif impossible as it keeps sticking pentax metadata in. Exif info now entered and I have uploaded the pre crop and rotation version for info.

Thanks

Great shot ,like the crop.
A very strong dynamic shoot. Have the plane at 45 Degrees across the frame really does work well.

A well time capture.
