Ah, me, a Dragon Rapide... She's a bit earlier than 1945 - about ten years earlier in fact. Just gorgeous. :smile:
I don't know my British planes (understatement of the year) but it sure looks like this one (apparently a 1945 as well)..... http://www.airliners.net/photo/Scil...2495778/&sid=16f54932db7f87152e44e8f8aa7212d1
Stunning capture Christilou,
It has your signature diffused vignette that I love and makes your work instantly recognisable - magic!
I'm happy to be corrected, but I don't think any were built as late as 1945, although they were certainly built up to and during WW2 and pressed into military service. Many went back into civil use at the end of the war; they were ideal for short-haul use, tough, stable and reliable.
seems it was at the very end of the run. A lovely (and rare) bird...... http://www.shuttleworth.org/shuttleworth-collection/aircraft-details.asp?ID=51
Oh yes. Truly beautiful :smile:
Great comp & subject matter!
