    I assume the photographer is using a telephoto lens. If not, he would be very, very close to the propeller in the foreground!
    The shots you find of planes in flight are great, Barry. Thanks for sharing them.

    Great pic Baz.
    Hurricane LF363 was built as a cannon-armed Mk IIC during the latter part of 1943. The aircraft’s first flight, an air test, was completed on New Year’s Day 1944. In July 1957, after a major re-fit at Hawkers, LF363 became a founding aircraft of the RAF Historic Flight, the forerunner of the BBMF.
    On 11th September 1991 it suffered an engine failure crash landing at RAF Wittering. The aircraft was seriously damaged by the crash and the ensuing fierce fire; fortunately the pilot escaped with a broken ankle and minor burns. LF363 was completely re-built by Historic Flying Ltd between 1994 and 1998, re-joining the BBMF. It now appears as an eight-machine-gun-armed Mk IIA

    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!
