    This was pre WW2 but was the first time these two aircraft had flown together

    Another shot taken on the same day required the balance between shutter speed slow enough to show the propellor rotating, against the speed of the panning to still capture the aircraft with enough sharpness.

    Photography thread

    One of mine shot for The Imperial War Museum. They were always interested in images of WW2 aircraft that had never been seen flying together.

    Office chair recommendations for bad back...

    Have you had a look at the MARKUS Office Chair from IKEA. I've had one for the last 7 years and it's still as good as new. I can spend a full day in front of the PC editing images and with its mesh and cushioned back, and the usual adjustable height, swivel, castors etc., it is by far the best...

    Anybody, admired your motor?

    Over the years I had a few comments regarding the cars I drive - some of them complimentary!! I think the one that received the most was a British Racing Green XK140 Coupe. Almost everytime it had been cleaned and went out someone (usually women) would comment about its lines. Recently the E63...

    Mileage Mileage Mileage

    Browsing through the Italian equivalent of Autotrader OnLine for a nice cheap runabout/hack to pick up people from the station/airport (when we are next allowed to travel), and I have been surprised by the mileages racked up by relatively 'normal' cars ........... So far 533,000 km is the...

    Postcodes - An Explanation

    In italy we use the 5 number postcode system which can cover quite an area. So to help, the main roads (each of which can be a couple of hundred Km long), also have distance posts every 1/10th of a km, so all you need do is give your relevant distance marker and your road name and Roberto is...

    V8 addict

    Apart from the fact that Chicago's weather is much worse than the UK ............ They don't call it the windy city for nothing, and the rest of the time it's either snowing (heavily), raining (non-stop) or very very hot & humid. :)

    You have £1m to spend on cars

    In the days of the Berlin Wall I was taking some very early PC gear from Nuremburg to Berlin via Hoff (the southern gateway through East Germany). It was very late at night/early morning and the road from Nuremburg was virtually empty and my Ford Cortina estate was fully loaded and flat out at...

    [SOLD] 2012 E63 PP - 700bhp - 830lbs/ft

    It is with some regret that I have decided to put my E63 PP up for sale, but an upcoming relocation to Italy means its now time to move on. The PP version is a rare animal in that it came as standard with a mechanical LSD, uprated power and torque figures, and factory modified suspension...

    What 'purpose' does your big AMG Saloon serve?

    Over the years I have run a string AMGs from a C55 and E55 through to a couple of SLK55s and a W212 E63 which has been breathed on by Acid at MSL. I am a commercial photographer shooting everything from fashion to motorsport, and advertising campaigns to warbirds, and it has been an absolute...

    SLK55 eco not working!

    The SLK55s do seem to have some strange electrical habits. Ours started doing exactly as you described in terms of non-functioning ECO mode (used only by the other half!!). I originally put it down to her 3 miles round trip to the shops and lack of decent runs - this was compounded by the...
