Up In The Air – Two classics of aviation
Thought for the day….”Don’t look back, you are not going that way”
“If you are not meant to have midnight snacks then why is there a light in the fridge?”
A couple of photos from the recent Warbirds Over Wanaka airshow, held at Easter this year in Pembroke Wanaka, New Zealand. The first photo is the Supermarine Spitfire. Designed by R.J. Mitchell, it came into service in 1938, and was in production throughout the second world war. About 53 Spitfires are still in flying condition. Over 20 300 Spifires were made, and they remained in service until 1961. This particular aircraft carries a registration to commemorate the New Zealand pilot Alan Deere.
The second photo is the Messerschmidt Bf 109, which was used by the Luftwaffe in Germany during the second world war. It entered service in 1937, with around 33 000 being made. At least 10% were lost in take-off or landing accidents.
Both aircraft performed displays during the 2 days of the airshow.
and another photo from the archives….an early test photo from the X-E1 camera………
