A first time go at aviation photography for me led to a venture into Essex with North Weald Airfield being the location of chioce. This was a Timeline Events charter which seen 2 fine aircraft being utilised from the Hangar 11 Collection, these being:

Hawker Hurricane MK IIB BE505
North American P-51D Mustang 44-72035

To add authenticity to the images, we also had period vehicles and period dressed re-enactors to bring some life to the photo's. With the exception of the engine runs, and group photo's, all images are in either Black & White or Sepia.
