My Sunday Photo: 20 May 2018

Beech 18 AircraftWhen I drove into the Leicestershire countryside yesterday, I knew nothing about this aircraft. I had stopped to eat, when I first heard, then saw it. I grabbed my camera, which fortunately had a long focal length zoom lens already fitted! Out of a few shots, I think this is the best, as the underside of the fuselage caught the sun in quite a spectacular manner.
It turns out that this machine is a Beech 18, registered in this country as G-BKGL. It was built some time during World War 2, and re-manufactured in 1951! It was participating in the Midlands Air Festival this weekend.

It's kind to share!
