    This past weekend I was privileged to shoot the aircraft participating in the Battle of Britain Flypast in Ottawa. It was an awesome weekend of flying and fun.

    Awww, I just soooooooo love your air-to-air-photography, Eric!
    And for these I really like there were clouds and for a change you did NOT have the all-blue-and-only-blue skies!
    I am far too little an expert (well, in honest words: NO expert at all!) on planes to appreciate what planes they flew :oops: but ... I still like what I see here! :D
    And the aerial view of that part of Ottawa is wonderful. What is it exactly that we see?

    Those buildings would be the Parliament Buildings of Canada, correct?

    Having seen the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight the best part of 20 times I can say that you do it 100 times better than us Brits!!

    All we ever get is 1x Lanc with either 1x spit & 1x Harricane
    or 1 x Lanc and 2 x spits

    or if there is the smallest wind blowing we get sod all


    This gets my vote any day

    Thanks everyone. Lostprophet is right on the aircraft, One Lnacaster, two Hurricanes, a Spitfire and Mustang. That is the Parliament buildings where our government resides. Most of my American friends are always shocked we can fly over or Government buildings which I have been able to do several times. For more images from the day you can check out my website at http://www.airic.ca/html/battle_of_britain.html

    Cheers,

    Eric

    Those are some sweet shots...my grandfather few Lancs towards the end of the war. That wouldn't be the Lanc from Hamilton, is it? Or is there another one floating around somewhere? I always thought that that one was pretty much the only flyable one left, at least in Canada

    Excellent series, Eric!! Your air to air shots are simply fantastic.

    (And nice to see the aerial view of the Parliament buildings)
