    Yeah, my Grandfather was with 91 Squadron at Biggen Hill during the Battle. Not sure what he did, although he wasn't a pilot. I think he is mentioned in Geoffrey Wellum's book a couple of times.

    There's a Spitfire at Filton airfield near me - I love the noise that Rolls Royce Merlin engine makes.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Awesome shots. A proper airshow is one of the things I've been meaning to do for years.

    some nice pics - not bad prop blur - but really need to shoot @ 1/130-1/160 to get a decent circle

    i find some shots are over compensated for contrast and others are really lacking..

    over all a good set of pics

    I tried some at that speed but they were all dreadful unfortunately. More practice needed on my part.

    Still not got the hang of this photoshopping, I do have a better copy of the solo spitifre though where I've brought the shadows up so you can see the side.

    Cheers, I was quite pleased with them.
