    Thanks for posting Tony. So you didn't bring your portable stadium lights either, eh?

    Great pics Tony, and I really think someone needs their Rs kicking for the lighting and display set-up in the BoB Hall these days - it used to be excellent.
    Good to see the Spit MkV again too, got to sit in that one when it was in the Manchester Air Space Museum in the early 1980s.

    Agree with everyone, great photos indeed. Shame about the poor lighting, but still looks like an awesome place to visit.

    Cool shots dude...love the 110 and the spit from the rear...classic !

    I hardly know how to admit this...I took just under 64 pics ...SHOCK HORROR PROBE !!!. Was pleasantly surprised at the lighting in the BoB hall :shock: I think that they now have a sequence of raising certain lights as you move around the hall, so its a case of waiting for the lights to come on or off depending how long you want spend trying to get a certain shot. Managed to get in the sunderland for the first time in umpteen years....crickey thats a big bird !!

    Anyway, here's a few of the few shots I took...

    Good stuff Gary. The B-17 bombardier looks short of breath - wonder if he knows his oxygen isn't connected !

    Neat stuff. Museum lighting is always a challenge, especially with the vast open spaces and high ceilings that swallow up the light from a flash.
