Shooting the vintage Matchless and BMW airhead alongside fully working Merlin Spitfires on the hanger floor was simply breathtaking. We had the pleasure of witnessing the final flight of the day before the shoot could get underway. Besides the sheer power of the engines spraying my dad's coffee from its mug at
20m it was a spectacle to behold.
The pilots and technicians at Boultbee were a friendly and humble team of chaps who seemed almost numb to the majesty of their iron clad war veteran surroundings and instead relished in the bikes and the chance to see and hear some different machines around the hanger.
Legacy lined us up in some high end garments that were complimented and fitting amongst the Spitfires & Mustangs gracing the hanger floor. A couple of willing volunteers had joined us in the form of my wife Sarah and sister Emily whom reluctantly agreed to be in picture in return for the chance to mingle around the planes and restored relics of Boultbee.
A memorable evening by any lengths, thanks again to Mark at Legacy 85 for creating this unbelievable opportunity.
