Smiley Aeroplane

You can’t help seeing a smiley face on this old RAF training aircraft at the Yorkshire Air Museum.

Up in the clouds

‘Anything with an engine’ is Cee’s topic for her Black & White Challenge this week. So here’s a light plane showing its paces at the annual ‘Estevol’ air show near Blond.

This is an image which works much better in monochrome than colour, thanks mainly to the enhanced contrast of the plane with those big clouds.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Action

After last week’s theme of ‘Rest’ it was only logical that this time Frank would be seeking some ‘Action’ images for his Tuesday Photo Challenge.

This is the display team of the Air Force of the United Arab Emirates in action over Abu Dhabi, as part of the country’s National Day celebrations.

Flight Path

I have to admit that this is a pretty free interpretation of Cee’s Black & White challenge this week of ‘public transport’. However, the image – which is really all about the clouds – does include an aeroplane, which is certainly a form of public transport.

This particular ‘plane is on its final descent into Heathrow Airport in London and is just passing over the railway bridge that crosses the Thames at Barnes.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

Community? Well, it’s a broad brief, to be sure. I suppose ‘community of interest’ would qualify as an example, and if these guys don’t have a shared interest – and mutual trust – then I don’t know who does.
