[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is taxiing to parking after landing at Duxford Airfield during Flying Legends Airshow 2005.

The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was the first mass-produced, four-engine heavy bomber. It is still one of the most recognized airplanes ever built. It was most widely used for daylight strategic bombings of German industrial targets during World War II as part of the United States Eighth Air Force.

Hi Joar, I think this is one of your better shots! The blurred props, engine exhaust and stormy sky all add the drama of the event. I like the low PoV, lucky they had cut the grass :) The wingtips through the frame is a nice touch to complete the composition, well done. Regards Tim

Great capture with a very useful note. I like the framing - gives the photo a more realistic feel. Well done!

Very nice. I like the way the wings go outside the border. Great job.

Excellent shot - blurred propellers give the feeling of movement, sky adds some dramatic colour and your decision to have the wings cut through the border really give it a feeling that this plane is about to take off from the page.
Thanks for sharing
