    Default WWI Aircraft

    With ANZAC day fast aproaching, I decided to look back at some of my pics. Not many were much good as I'd been using a P&S at the time but I found some new software that assisted in making them useable so I thought that I'd share them with you.

    If all goes well and the weather holds for a while longer I should have some better ones to share! Thanks for looking.

    Wow 182 views and no one wanted to let you know how cool these shots are. Are these original planes or are they kits? I really like the Fokker DR1. I find the lines of just about any aircraft to be so cool and very ascetically pleasing. Very nice shots as always. Thanks for posting. I think they are going to cancel the air show here at MacDill AFB in Tampa due to budget cuts.

    PS. I hope your doing well after your little run in with that poll.

    I love that last shot. It sounds like we aren't going to have much in the way of Air Shows in the United States this year since certain two year olds can do their jobs.....

    Thanks Rick, these are all built from the origional plans and are reproductions not replicas. Go have a look at The Vintage Aviator | Constructors Of Military Aircraft to see what these guys get up to, Its quite amazing. lets hope that your show goes ahead - I'd like to see some pics!!

    Thanks Richard, yep they are Peters, I tried to find out just what he has but it's has been quite difficult!! He keeps many details to himself.
