Some beautiful entries already....very hard to top some of them, but I'll step up to the mark as always, and without further ado, here's the first of my three

Auster J/5R 'Alpine' G-APAA. Formerly owned by the Automobile Association in England, and used for traffic spotting duties!

Love the shots of Rapide G-AKIF, I used to fly on that aircraft regularly when she was based at Booker. I worked for Personal Plane services owned by Tony Bianchi and that aircraft was in our care. We used it for joy riding when things were quiet. She then wore an overall Dark blue colour scheme on the fuselage with the markings in white. I,ll have to dig out some photos of her and taken from inside when we were over the chilterns. A really lovely old aircraft.

DA, that's a great story, and one i'd love to see the photos of. I've only once flown in a DH89a, and if memory serves it was Air Atlantique's G-ATGM in the all blue colours...

anyways, i came back with my 3rd of this competition, but i've still got 2 days off next week to play with a few things, so who knows, i might be back with a replacement yet!!

Here she is, its the venerable P-51D Mustang "Cripes A' Mighty" taking it low and slow over Colorado, just a few clicks from Granby-Grand County Airport (KGNB)

Thanks to everyone who entered this month :good:

As ever, a very high standard of shots I pondered over a couple of shots for quite a while but this one came out tops! Very colourful and just the thing for a dreary day outside.

So without further ado, this months winner is RB16015 with this picture of the Junkers JU52 :cool:
