My main interests are landscape, wildlife and sports events.
I use a Nikon D40X, a Nikon D60 and a Nikon D3100.
The lenses are either Nikkor or Sigma or a Tamron 60mm Macro. I also have a small collection of vintage cameras.
I hope you enjoy my photography and keep coming back for more, as I am constantly working to increase my portfolio.

    Excellent shot for comparing sizes. Do you mean a Mk2a (Mk11a) Hurricane?
    Into faves Cheers Neil

  • Thanks very much Neil. I have looked up the aircraft on the net and I have found it listed as a MK12A. The registration is Z5140. It is not an aircraft I know so if you have any more information please let me know.

    You are right Nigel, As it was built in Canada they seem to add a X (10) to the mark number. The Canadian Lancaster is for instance a Mk X.
    “Z5140, registered as G-HURI. It is a Canadian-built Mk XII Hurricane and is painted to represent a Royal Air Force 126 Squadron Hurricane Mk IIB and is operated by The Historic Aircraft Collection at Duxford.”
    Cheers Neil

  • Thanks Neil, appreciate your help.
