This was captured many years ago on film at an air show at Barton Airport near Manchester.
Later scanned from the negative. (many thanks to sut68 for identifying it as a B-17 Flying Fortress)

Nice shot. A quick Google tells me this aircraft eventually became the famous Sally B.

Nice one! The sharpness of the aeroplane and the blurred propellers and background really work well.
