Photo-a-Day (Friday, 10th June, 2011)
Photo: Brian (Fuji Finepix S7000)
The most beautiful lines of any aircraft designed before or after.
very nice shot Brian, is the guy in uniform at the rear of the Spitfire on his mobile phone?
Great photo, looks like a Spitfire to me.
Lovely pic. Wish they'd have a Forties Day in Wigan.
So do I Irene, I'd be there !
How did they get the plane there ??
To the brave men that flew in these , we are forever in your debt .
or even a 50`s day , but couldnt do the jiving these days ....or wear the stiletto shoes anymore.Oh happy memories !!!
the plane flew up wallgate under the railway bridge?
Must have been a tricky landing.Quite right Gareth,thanks to all those who's bravery gave us our freedom.
I really wanted to see this replica but unfortunately it was on show midweek so missed it due to work, why was it not at the weekend ?
What a stunner!
A great debt is owed to all the brave lads who flew these planes. Wonder how many baddies this particular plane brought down.
We should be eternally grateful to the inventor of this wonderful beast, but especially to all the brave men from numerous nations who took to the air in 1940 onwards. May God take care of them all. RIP
I bought the instruction manual for the plane . I don't have garage space for the plane itself at the present time. It's in a wonderful location near to the Moon.
Very clever comment Fred !
dead sick i missed this plane how do you know when these things are on show ?
