SPOTM August 2018 De Havilland - the winners

Post by andygolfer » Thu Sep 13, 2018 6:32 pm

Here are the winners of the august 2018 Special Subject photo competition. The subject was De Havilland designed aircraft and although entries were slightly lower than usual we had an excellent cross section of types so thanks to everybody who took time to find an entry and also to vote.

this is where I get embarrassed for a moment, this month's winner was me with this DH.60 Moth G-EBWD at Old Warden during the evening show in May this year

In second place was London Eye (Pete) with this Dan Air Comet G-BDIT lamnding at Gatwick:

then we had a 4 way tie for 3rd place between
waghorn41 (Ian Pursey) who has finally made it to the HoF with another Gatwick photo but this time several Dan Air Comets (I re edited it a bit with his consent after the vote - what memories that brings back!)....

All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?
