A great shot of the Mk 1 Hurricane P2902 at Duxford. This is a really nice looking machine, so I processed the shot so that it looked as though it was in a dark hangar with the sunlight lighting her up.

If anything shows the changes since the law on historic pleasure flights came in, it is this shot of three 2 seat Spitfires in a hangar at Duxford.
