Captured at the Flying Legends Airshow at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. More about this iconic US built World War 2 plane on Wikipedia. This particular model H75-C1 (number 82) is one of (possibly the only) Hawk to be restored to flying condition. Please click on the photo for more viewing options on Flickr.
Nikon D7000, f/5, 1/1000, ISO200 Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 Lens

Very nice capture. Spot on focus.
Thank you! You know how it is, 10 shots and only 1 or 2 are within frame and maybe in focus..
Well you have a better average than me. It’s the depth of field that drives me crazy.
This was my first outing to an airshow and I think the really heavy Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 was a good lens to have as it was really quick to focus (the next time I’ll take a tripod!).
