Lucky enough to win a pair of tickets to the Duxford Flying Legends, sponsored by Bremont, from this very Forum! So here are a few shots of the 'planes. I'll also post the P-51 watch shots and my thoughts on it!

I was relatively happy with about six of the shots I took. I think I ended up taking about 500, of which about 90 have been uploaded to my Flickr account. These are my favourites:

The Red Bull P-38F (style) Lightning

The simply fantastic synchro display from the impeccable P-51 Horsemen (Fragile but Agile in the lead position)

Two more P-51 in their original role (sadly Big Beautiful Doll ditched following an incident with a Skyraider on the final pass of the day)

Probably the most beautiful sound of the day came from this Centaurus-powered RNAS Sea Fury

And a final tribute to Big Beautiful Doll. I'm sure she'll be back in some guise, or another

wow amazing shots! you must have packed a decent lens! i must say, my favourite sequences were the mustangs, the old 3 layered world war 1 style plane with the big wheels, which was like watching a kite getting blown about! and the incredible silver beauty of the p-38 - so graceful in the air!
