    photo: Lt. Scott's Fighter Jet

    Hard to believe it's been more than ten years since I made this photo ...


    Pentax *ist DS + FA28-105mm f/3.2-4.5AL(IF)
    ISO 200 @ f/6.3 @ 1/250 @ 28mm

    The location was the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum, near Chicester in Sussex, England.

    enjoy!

    Hi Godfrey, thanks for posting that pic.

    I was just watching some videos of the DH.110 Sea Vixen prototype, in which John Derry was killed at Farnborough while attempting to break the sound barrier.



    We tend to forget what tumultuous times in aviation those heady post WW2 days were.

    Thank you for the video link.

    Yes, the birthing of the Jet Age was intense. All the conflicts that pushed it along... !
    Whenever I head over to the UK, my friend Dave and I visit air shows and aviation museums.
