You were there and didn't take a photo of the registration?
It's not level, and the people kill it.

The type is almost certainly a Boeing Stearman/Kaydet. Provided it's still flying, not a static exhibit that was wheeled out for the occasion, it should be possible to identify the reg.

I don't think the cones would be a problem as they're not so obtrusive. Levelling the photo should be easy enough but the light is not ideal and as Jeff suggests you might get a badpeople rejection.
Make the most of the available light ... a lesson of photography that applies to life

I don't think the cone will be a problem. And it is a Boeing Stearman. Like this one:

Hi Justin,

Its always hard to make good pictures at air shows or open days. The background is mostly filled with people or other things which are not easy to get rid of. That’s one thing, another issues is 'not level', but that could be easily fixed.

The plane is also standing in its own shadow which is in general not a good thing.

The cone? well I think that is not a real point of discussion (although forbidden, it is not so difficult to clone that out).
