Fuel Dump

As part of the simulated WWII Battle at the Land & Air Spectacular an Allied Fuel Dump is bombed by a Folke Wolf 190.

This is one of many explosions to be seen on the day.

I've now finally finished sorting through the photos from the weekend and have posted them up here: clients.degrootphotography.com.au/EmuGully/
