About the Book
This book is a photographic collection of a truly exhilirating day at The Imperial War Museum at Duxford, Cambridgeshire, England, where huge crowds flocked to the former World War II airfield to witness the Second World War Flying Legends Air Show.
Warbirds photographed include a squadron of Spitfires, Hurricane, Mustang, Hawker Nimrod, Seafire, P-51D Mustangs including 'Ferocious Frankie', 'Old Crow' and 'Big Beautiful Doll', Arrow Active II, Junkers Ju-52, Gloster Gladiator, Corsair, Bearcat, Hellcat (the only example flying outside the States), Wildcat, Tomahawk, Skyraider, Messerschmitt Me108, B-17, Catalina, B-25, Mitchell, Yak, Invader, and loads more…
The first section includes up-close pictures of stationery aircraft and ground-based displays, including several shots of volunteer staff in authentic dress, The book then continues with loads of pictures of the planes airborne including an incredible display of an F-15E Strike Eagle of the USAFE's 48th Fighter Wing in formation with a group of Mustangs, and the new 'Team Guinot' wing walking demonstration!
A lot of people are amazed at how close the planes appear in the pictures, as I found a great spot to shoot from with my collection of lens's including my big zoom with Image Stabilisation.
The book has been created with the very best quality in mind, and is only available in Blurb's largest size hardback with glossy dust-jacket. All of the photography has been professionally optimised and the book professionally designed for maximum impact.
I hope whoever buys this book gets the same amount of enjoyment from it as I had in creating it!
