Artist's Description

MODIFIED SLIGHTLY TO IMPROVE IMAGE SIZE.
This is one in a series showing various aircraft with their national marking behind.
This aircraft is Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation Ca-16 Wirraway VH-WWY in World War Two colours of Royal Australian Air Force aircraft A20-176.
The photograph was taken with a Nikon D90 camera fitted with a Sigma EX 50-500mm 1:4-6.3 APO DG HSM zoom lens.
The photo was tweaked using Gimp software – brightness/contrast tool and sharpening filter and was isolated from the original photo by select & clear and colour to alpha tools. The blue & white roundel was as used in the South Western Pacific Theatre during the Second World War by the Royal Australian Air Force (and also some Royal Air Force squadrons) and was also made using Gimp by overlaying a white circle on top of the same circle in dark blue and scaling the white circle to suit. Then the aircraft image was overlaid, scaled and rotated and the titles added.
It was taken at the first day of the Kempsey Air Show held at Kempsey Airport, Kempsey, on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia on 1 October 2016.
