There was one point when they were all flying abreast coming perpendicular to the flight line. It was a great visual, but they were so spread out taking a photo of any consequence was impossible. Here are some of them as they passed.

Just so as not to confuse Martin, :rofl: there are seven in this photo. (sorry, couldn't resist!)

This from D500 + 200-500 though. Not m43. Hope that's ok. Don't have super zoom yet for my OMD!

Winner! When I posted I originally put eight, then I thought...let's have a little fun. I wondered how long it'd take!

Hey! No fair! I really did put eight on the original post, and then went back and edited it to seven. You got me! That's what I get for poking at Martin Andrew!

The Hawker Sea Fury T20 flying in the opposite direction was the 'Joker' in the pack.

Having listened to quite a few Sea Fury’s and many others, I reckon the SF is the best sounding piston engined aircraft ever!
I love the sound of a radial engine. It's immediately recognizable. Two nights ago I was doing some burgers on the grill and the YAF's B-25 flew over on one of its paid-flight runs. I knew it was a radial long before I could see it.

Too quick for me to get a decent image of, plenty of blurry ones though!
Martin, the Sea Fury was also the fastest piston engined aircraft flying, which I think that’s why they are favourites among the air racing crowd, i.e. those with deep pockets. I have worked on two of them an awful long time ago(early 60s).

Sorry, not shot with my Olympus, but my iPhone. An ANA Airbus A380 aircraft with their Honu (sea turtle) livery at Honolulu airport. I think they do this only for Hawaii flights. I had to zoom in so Rez is a little low.
