    Amazing Airshow (for a giggle)

    My Dad was recently given this jigsaw - I thought it would provide some amusement for the forum's purists and nit-pickers. It has certainly amused me! Rather a large image, but there's all sorts of little stuff lurking in the background. Are those hangers I see or hangars?

    Boy, that is a tough crowd to please.

    There is a Stirling AND a Beaufighter, but still hardly anyone can be bothered to watch!

    Bizarrely, it makes me think of Caravaggio, whose paintings always look to me as though each person has been carefully placed without quite mmaking them fit the same picture.

    The perspective and scaling is all over the place.

    Those spits on the airfield are huge.

    Hoever I am pleased that Columbo's dog is center stage. Its where he would have wanted to be.

    Hangers are for clothes or 'on' people.......Hangars are for hairyplanes...
    I bet that airshow would make a few ATC personnel or the Airshow director go pale beyond belief.

    That must be the 'naughty field' at Duxford is it?

    Nope, can't be.....not a camera in sight!

    And who are all those strange-looking spotters with the long hair and those funny bumps under their sweaters?

    Once again inundated with Spitfires and not a Typhoon or Tempest in sight!
