I love how shiny this Bucc' looks! :D The Mk.50 I am restoring is never going to look like this though, it will stay in a more matte finish. Great photograph!

Nice shot !

one intriguing point : engines are running (vapor blurr behind the a/c) but the white end of each engine looks steady (even with 1/320 sec you can expect some rotational effect ? ) 

any explanation ?

I'm afraid I do not have an explanation for that, there is no photoshop trickery involved here except the faux HDR treatment so I cannot help you with that question?

I guess the RR Spey engine has a first row of fixed blades in front of the fan , hence the central hub is fixed as well

even though the exact model may be different, one can see such configuration on the photo here (the most precise I could find on the web with a short search

www.valves.co.uk/blog/?p=43

I 'll try to check , it was possibly a common design for turbo fan in the late 50's

That they did, have you seen the Blackburn Roc. Lets just say she wasn't a looker but she more than made up for it in character. :D

Strangely Blackburns early designs were actually quite conventional and elegant. namelessfaithlessgod.deviantar…

I was thinking of the Roc when I said that, haha!  I think the Type D is the only elegant Blackburn I've seen. 
What about the R.1 Blackburn? That one is even worse! www.airwar.ru/image/idop/other…
