2. The photograph must have been taken during the month in question.
3. The photo can be of any subject you like, as long as there is some civilian aviation connection - shots of military aircraft at civilian airfields do not qualify though.
4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not, (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules, size etc, read them if you're not sure how to post etc.
9. Please also embed the images and not post a link to an image as it makes it harder to judge, if you're not sure how to do it, shout up and someone will sort it out.

Hmmm, must be airshow season judging by the entries so far, anyway here's a third continuing the theme, taken at the Old Warden season opener. Spitfire G-AWII (AR501) and Mew Gull G-AEXF flying in a nice formation on 12th May:
