Airscene 2010 Airshow Calendar Competition

01/10/09 - This years competition is now closed and judging has been passed over to the 7 judges. Some comments have already been received from previous winners stating that this years competition is particularly tough - so I think the judges are in for a difficult time. I have my personal favourites, and I will spend some time over the next week or so selecting my favourite 12 to see how close I get to the judges results.

19/10/09 - The 1st set of results are now in - to see results table please click HERE

Anne Millbrooke's comments:
050 “my step is heavy / but I can fly like an angel / and so like a hawk” —Patti Smith The threatening clouds go superbly with the powerful fighter.
075 “And your life is a question of velocity and altitude, / With allowances for wind and the quick, relentless pull / of gravity.” — Barry Amiel This photo makes me want to reread Saint-Exupéry’s “Wind, Sand and Stars.”
015 “Higher still and higher, / From the earth thou springest / Like a cloud of fire; / The blue deep thou wingest, / And singing still dost soar, and soaring ever singest.” — Percy Bysshe Shelley
033 “Earth it is that guides his flight, / And urges him into the skies. / And earth will bring him home again” — Katinea Koeser
020 “O sailor of the thin tides of the airs!” — Robert P. T. Coffin
041 “Ten had gone out … and only five returned. / Ten had gone out … ten young winged hearts that spurned / Tomorrow’s promise for the glory of today, / With noses thumbed at Fate … like boys at play.” — Don Blanding
017 “We came from home, my plane and I. / We heard a command to do or die.” — Harriet Monroe
021 “V for valant bird, a wedge / driven between / as though to split a sky” — Günter Grass
007 “Let us prove them wrong, and the power of flight for man / Means peace, eternal peace, for war so horrible / By airplane armies makes it vain / The village, town and city to defend.” — Astra
002 “B is for BOMBERS, our national pride, / And also for BOYS who like Bombers to ride. / And also for BLESS in ‘God Bless Our Side.’” — John Ciardi
023 “Remembering that all our dreams are fliers.” — John Ciardi
072 Colorful smoke trailing planes at play
Also notable:
004 “The game is full of trouble, / And the end is hard and short; But the Lord do n’t like a quitter / Accordin’ to report!” — Everard Jack Appleton

011 Playtime

013 “A poet, too, may ruminate / With guardian angels, forced to wait” — Austin Clarke

019 Rhyming rotors

028 “Speak for the air, your element, you hunters / Who range across the ribbed and shifting sky: / Speak for whatever gives you mastery — / Wings that bear out your purpose, quick-responsive / Fingers, a fighting heart, a kestrel’s eye.” — C. Day Lewis

031 Red and white formation in the blue sky

040 “This is the song of the Plane— / The creaking, shrieking plane / The throbbing, sobbing plane, / And the moaning, groaning wires: / The engine—missing again! / One cylinder never fires! / Hey ho! for the Plane!” — Gordon Aichin

046 “O, watch him now ascend / The rungless ladder!” — Amanda Benjamin Hall

047 “Flying folly / and feat at fairs / and brave to boys.” — W.H. Auden

052 “On the ground / The plane is wheeled into the wind and rests” — Boris Todrin

053 “Listen to the years flying! / Listen to them whir their giant wings in your ears” — Loureine Aber

060 Cargo: function in flight

062 “Thinkers and airmen — all such / Friends and pilots upon the edge / Of the skies of the future — much / You require a bullet’s eye of courage / To fly through this age.” — Stephen Spender

067 “It was a field of sunlight and of air, / Oh, Rider, that your magic steed roamed over,— / Where clouds were left like dust along the glare” — Zoe Akins

068 “Hurrah for the wings that never tire— / For the nerves that never quail; / For the heart that beats in a bosom of fire—“ — William H. Rhodes
