Portrait of an Icon
Iconic in presentation in both sight and sound the Spitfire lives on some 75 yrs after the design was completed. Many example still remain in flying condition supported by various enthusiast organisations all over the world. Many versions of this aircraft can be seen each year at the Duxford Legends weekend - the show opener is usually �staffed� by up to 12 Spits beating up the field in an unforgettable tableau of sight and sound.
This particular version, the Mk VIII, was operated by 145 Sqdn in Italy in 1944 mainly in the ground attack role. Now restored to full flying capability she is a regular attendee at European airshows and is maintained and flown by German ground crew...
Have been interested in photography since just after WW2, when film became freely available again, using Kodak Autographic equipment. Graduated, in the 50's, to 35mm and was involved in photographic work during my 17 yrs as RAF aircrew - navigator. Since retirement and migrating to Canon digital equipment have been involved with two of my sons and one grandson in a considerable amount of photographic activity, particularly composite images. Now producing digital art prints with the major emphasis on classic warbird aviation.
