I enjoy all your aviation shots, but this one has stirred up some discussion.  What is in the pilot's hand?

He is holding a ball!

The aircraft is part of the Captain Neville Flying Circus, a barnstorming display team. As part of the show they set up a goal with a goalkeeper wearing big foam hands. The pilot then attempts to drop the ball and score a goal. :)

Ah yes - the sole surviving "QBee".  She looks magnificent! ^_^

Actually there's another Queen Bee "LF789" which resides at the de Havilland Aviation Heritage Centre just a few miles away from where I live. She has no wings though, but she does still retain the old radio equipment I believe. Considering the museum is only around six miles away from me I really must make an effort to visit more often.
