Nice. I'm trying to get a line if any of them are showing to Oly this June. Had a great time with Bad Kitty in Yakima last summer.

Nice! FYI, I'm thinking of implementing a new rule that anyone posting ONLY ONE shot of a Spitfire will be banned through the rest of the air show season. ;)

Maybe we should have a thread dedicated to Spitfires only?

Yeah, I've been working on it for a while now. I agree it needs to fade sooner and be not as wide.

that's the best idea I've seen all day. Who's going to start one?


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II (broken), and an M5, along with a M6 destined for 720nm
TF posting: here :-)

Yes, it is a very significant airplane. It was flown by the Czech Fighter Wing—part of the renowned RAF Squadron 312 in England during the war. Was transfered to the Czech airforce after the war and flown by the famous Karel Posta. Then it flew for the Isreali Airforce and ended up in Burma. More can be learned here:

Lovely shots, shame we didn't get to see it fly over here before it left.

Yeah the story goes something like this: CAA put them on a list to come out and do the initial airworthy inspection. The date was about 8 months away and the airplane was nearly done. It was crated up and shipped to Everett, WA, reassembled in a few days, inspected by the FAA (they came out right away) and flown that weekend!
