Fairey Firefly AS.Mk 6

@ Nellis Air Force Base, Las Vegas, NV

November 2004

Another image from my inaugural trip to the annual Aviation Nation event.  This carrier-based anti-submarine aircraft was introduced as a fighter in 1943 and moved on to other functions postwar, serving with the Fleet Air Arm until 1953.  Both the UK and Australia Fireflies flew ground attack operations off various aircraft carriers in the Korean War.  Nikon Coolpix 4500, processed with Aperture.
