photoblog image A Bit of R and R

A Bit of R and R


One of the highlights of the Flying Legends Display is to walk the Flight Line and get close to the aircraft before the flying displays. Spread amongst them are members  of Living History, I suspect really there for the photographers to have a go, and everyone did. There were Nurses, Soldiers, Pilots and other airmen. Strangely enough 99% of the soldiers were in US uniforms.

The aircraft is the Battle of Britain Hawker Hurricane IIc of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, last seen over the Severn Valley Railway wearing different squadron markings.

It seems to me that a part of England is forever posing in second WW gear for you to make brilliant pictures. It is only the craft parked at the back that have me realise that this pic is not from the WW.

Yes, Louis is right. I could believe this was from the 1940s.
