Test Flight


The test pilot looked at the strange aircraft that he was about to climb in to. Looking more like something out of Buck Rogers or Dan Dare the “rocket fighter” as everyone was calling it was in fact a jet prototype carrying the mysterious albeit clerical designation of E28/39.

I took the picture at the Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire and added an ageing filter before playing with the shadows to darken it up to give a more mysterious feel and then adding a small vignette. To see the original photo and more of this aircraft you can see them on my site Defence of the Realm.
