 Flying from their bases at Bu Amud in Egypt and Benina and Castel Benito in Libya, 89 Sqn's Bristol Beaufighter night fighters were kept busy in the early months of 1943 against Axis intruders who had been forced into night bombing missions by the total air supremacy of the Allied air forces.  Here, a trio of Mk 1Fs bask in a glorious evening cloudscape, the nearest aircraft being V8447 (N), the personal aircraft of Wing Commander Dennis David, an ace with 17 victories to his name.

Unique in the history of Formula One motor racing are the Schumacher brothers. After seeing the success of his elder brother, whilst climbing through the ranks to stardom in F1, Ralf Schumacher had his sights set firmly upon beating his illustrious brother. At last in a competitive car, we see Ralfs Williams BMW leading Michaels Ferrari through the Veedol chicane at Nurburgring during the 2003 European Grand Prix. This event which Ralf went on to win turned the tables on the 2001 race which also saw the two fighting wheel to wheel at times but in that case Ralf could not quite match the Ferrari of his brother Michael. The race threw the championship for both constructors and drivers wide open and set the stage for one of the most exciting conclusions of a championship season for years.
