4 Bristols @ Point Cook Airshow, Australia 2014 by 


Which of these four Bristols is the newest?
The Point Cook Air Show was held at Point Cook Royal Australian Air Force Base (and home of the RAAF Museum) on the weekend of 1-2 March 2014 to celebrate the centenary of military flying training in Australia and at this base.
The base is on the shore of Port Phillip Bay south of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
The three Bristol cars shown in this photo were displayed next to the hangar containing replicas of the first aircraft used by the Central Flying School that began the flying training here. One of these aircraft was a replica of a Bristol Boxkite which flew on both days of the air show. It is, of course, the newest of the Bristols and is in the background.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D90 camera fitted with a Tamron AF Aspherical LD DiII SP 11-18mm 1:4.5-5.6 [IF] zoom lens plus polarizing filter.
The photo was tweaked using Gimp software – brightness/contrast tool and sharpening and cartoon filters.
