An impression of the nightly thunder at the Aviodrome. The trees are waving to 200 people in front of the Connie who's number 3 engine didn't start due to a minor problem with a fuel shutoff valve.

Excellent picture, Willem. This makes the good photographer: not in the crowd but searching for the perfect shot.

It isn't called the best looking 3-engine propeller for no reason!

Excellent shot. Regards from Republic of Macedonia.

Very artistic composition!! Love the silhouettes of people in the foreground and also the comparison afforded by the one set of props that isn't spinning. Great photography, pure art!
