Hadar under Torpedo Attack!


Swordfish


Whilst we were visiting the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust on Friday this Fairey Swordfish Mk.II of the Royal Navy Historic Flight passed over on it's way to the Royal International Air Tatoo at Fairford this weekend. I wonder if the torpedo strung underneath it is a real one? Even I am impressed with the photo capturing the prop stationary without any blurring.


You can find out further info about the visiting aircraft at the Air Tattoo Website.

The Lancaster went over yesterday afternoon when I was walking the dogs along the Severn - must be on the way to you...

Yes it was due to be there along with the Spitfire and Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Not sure that much flying was achieved yesterday with the rain, hopefully today will be better for them. http://www.airtattoo.com/airshow for further info, including all the visiting aircraft.
