Achtung Spitfeuer

Well this will be the final picture of the Duxford Flying Ledgends Air Show for the time being. Several TL members asked me: "Were is the real flying legend; the Spitfire?" Well here it is! Going together with the WWII German airman yel: "Achtung Spitfeuer!" :-) [Watch out Spitfires!]
Anyway hope you like this line up of different Spitfire types; from left to right: Mk IXB, Mk IX, Mk XIX and Mk XIV.

In the WS#1 you can find the final fly pass of 24 Flying legends.

In WS#2 the images of a mishap during landing of a P-51D Mustang.

[Report] Landing P-51D...nhaaa landing? More a less controlled crash. Anyway, while I was on the phone, keeping the mobile in my left hand, I tried to make some shots of landing P-51 Mustangs after the final fly pass. I noticed the landing of this P-51 wasn't going as planned. The aircraft bounced of the grass pitch up violently, came bqack to earth on his left landing gear strut (for our English friends: undercarriage) and pitched up again and showed the strut and left wheel were different from the original design. When is came back to earth for the third time he pitched down with his propeller almost hitting the ground and tipping over (at least he enjoyed three landings for the price of one) the Mustang made a sharp turn to the left and came to a rest ad the edge of the runway...the pilot climbed out of his cockpit unharmed. While this happend I gave my colleagues on the phone a life report of what happened in front of my eyes.

It was great to show you some impressions of the Duxford Flying Legends Air Show 2008!

Hans, I think the version you posted is a tad too dark - see my crit.

So I tried a little ws.

Using adjustment layers I:

- changed levels: 0, 1.4, 226. Goal: more light on the planes

- Shadows and highlights on bg layer: 0, +20. Goal: make the sky a tad darker again

- color balance: +15, 0, +15, adding a bit more red and blue.

- finally: sharpened a bit, USM +90%, 0,4, 0. More detail in the decals, but unfortunately, also a little halo around canopies and wings...
