Artist's Description

And she looks good in warpaint, too! The Spitfire, one of the world’s most iconic fighters, turned 75 on 5 March. This was actually shot the day before, on Friday 4 March this year, at the Australian International Air Show.

This Spitfire, named Grey Nurse, was flown down for the air show from the Temora Aviation Museum in New South Wales. The last time I saw this aircraft, she was in a hangar in Temora in June 2009 getting a new engine.

The other two aircraft in this frame are a Boomerang (left) and a Gloster Meteor, also from Temora.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F6.7, 1/350 sec, ISO 200, focal length 150mm.

Featured in UNTOUCHABLES, March 2011.
