I love old planes, when I was young went to all the airshows in Belgium. There I took a lot of pictures of planes, still analog in that time. Jus tlast week there was a small meeting of planes at our local airport of Antwerp. Now I find it a challenge to make a different photo of a plane or its people. so here I had a go at being a bit different.

Do not ask for the colorversions of these. I was there at noon and the sunlight was so hard and bright, just not nice.

They are beautiful in black and white also to me gives a period feel to the images. I love old planes too. There are a few modern fighters that I like but there is something about the look and sound of the old prop planes that will give you a chill down your spine.

Very cool photos. The contrasts are very hard, I think I would have reduced it a bit to achieve a bit more structure
in the black regions, but I think that's a matter of personal taste.

Glad you like them. Indeed I did not want too much detail.

I won't ask for the color, because the b&w works for me. #1 stands out for me.

Great shots!  I agree about saving noon hour harsh light shots by turning then into bw😎
