Photographer's Note

Dunsfold is a delightful village a few miles from where I live. Dunsfold aerodrome was built (by the Canadian Army) during world war 2. After the war it was involved in the Berlin Airlift. Later it was used as the final assembly place for the Harrier Jump Jet and the Hawk trainer aircraft. It was closed in 1999. In recent years the BBC has used it to film 'Top Gear', and is also the venue for the airshow 'Wings and Wheels'. In the picture you can see the Brietling wing-walkers facing winds of up to 150 m.p.h. The biplanes are old Boeing Stearmans. The girls choreographed routines are truely breath-taking as the planes do loops and rolls.
