Great shots, your timing is superb and you know what shutter speeds to use to get just the right amount of propeller blur.

Wonder how many gunners in the Junkers shot the tail fin off by mistake in the heat of battle! Best shot to me is No 1.

Used to see several of these at Shuttleworth air days.

Steve - another set of great shots. For me the BE2 - you can see every piano wire!

I think it's just great to see these old girls still flying.

Great shots of them all and I've enjoyed looking at them.

Re: Battle of Britain Air Show, Duxford (Part 2)

Great shots, but I don't think any of them flew in the Battle of Britain. Duxford should have been well aware of this!

The Warhawk is the nearest but P-40s didn't see service with the RAF till July 1941 (in Egypt) & the Battle of Britain is reckoned by the British to have finished in October 1940. Even the extended German range of the Battle of Britain (to June 1941 with the end of the Blitz) isn't quite enough for overlap.
