Miss Demeanor

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 15 August 2013 in Transportation and Portfolio.

This Hawker Hunter has flown at the Sunderland International Air show two or three times now, it's a subsonic jet but still fast enough and powerful enough to announce its arrival from a few miles away!

The very distinctive paint job makes for a very good picture, I had one shot where the pilot had the cockpit opened and was waving to the crowds below just like this one from two years ago, but I preferred the full bodywork in this shot.

PENTAX K100D 1/1500 second F/6.7 ISO 200 390 mm (35mm equiv.)

I sat in the Cockpit of a Hawker Hunter as a Young lad at the RAF Brawdy air day in Pembrokeshire back in the late 70´s/early 80´s.It certainly didn´t have this colour scheme back in it´s RAF days.Nice one..

Classic 60's jet and a stunning paint scheme, this was also at Blackpool Air Show last weekend and the pilot certainly gave it the beans.
