Admission: I left my phone camera in black&white; mode by mistake yesterday. So today's shot had an element of luck about it. That said, with the half-second delay it's a bugger to catch the blighters.

Taniwha, a Hurricane did indeed crash at this same airshow in Shoreham yesterday. From a thousand feet, straight into the ground. Very shocking, although I imagine the pilot died doing what he loved most.

I was once out sailing and a spitfire flew really low over the boat and circled back around and over us. It was like our own private airshow - I'm sure the pilot could see us gawping with amazement. Such beautiful planes.

The sound is a significant part of the experience - strange as generally I'm not that interested in planes, machines, engineering and stuff - more interested in design specifically
