The De Havilland Vampire owned by Judy Pay from Tyabb, Victoria, Australia was one of the aircraft performing at the Albion Park Airshow 2012 held at Albion Park Airport, Albion Park, south of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia on 6 May 2012.
It is shown here taking off to give its air display. Note: undercarriage retracting. The aircraft was formerly with the Royal Rhodesian Air Force and is shown in those markings. The Illawarra escarpment is in the background.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D90 camera fitted with a Sigma EX 50-500mm 1:4-6.3APO DG HSM zoom lens.
The photo was tweaked using Gimp software – brightness/contrast tool and sharpening filter.
