Thank you, Catherine. glad you like it.
An excellent indoor shot David
Thank you, Peter. I’m really enjoying my Sony, there’s very little you have to do to get a decent picture. My kind of camera! lol
Thank you, Warren.
Thank you, Cheryl.
Great display …
Great image and history David!
Thanks, Roy. Thanks for the fave.
Great image of this iconic aircraft David and an authentic one at that ! We are lucky enough to have a genuine one in the Auckland War Museum alongside a Spitfire – that’s what it’s labelled as but it’s actually a Seafire ! You can see where the arrester hook once sat.
Thanks Roy, I’m a bit (a lot) of an aeroplane nut, always have been. An airfield near where I grew up had a squadron of Sea Hornets. Ever see one of those?
