Coming immediately after Roger's bat shot I feel you got off lightly with a PR.XIX! Shows off the elliptical wing and five blade prop nicely. Like it!

Such a graceful shape. I would love to hear that engine too, even if not as fine as the merlin, it has a wonderful growl. A great shot. I think the light catching the leading edge of the wing really makes it. The Rolls Royce PR XIX sometimes practises over the fields near me but a bit too high up to get a good picture. That has invasion stripes, of course. This one is less cluttered.

Best wishes,
