So what is 12 Days of Aircraft all about I hear you say?
Well each day, we’ll be asking you to vote on your favourite photo out of two options.
A new poll will go up every afternoon and you’ll have 24 hours to vote on each poll.
It’ll all lead to another exciting announcement so get voting!!!

Denis Baker fondly remembers his time working at the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) at Fisherman’s Bend in Victoria.
On CanvasWings this weekend from 6pm:
Warwick Henry talks about his Stinson L-5B Sentinel which saw action in WWII with the U.S Army Air Force.
This is Warwick Henry's Stinson L-5B Sentinel. Used by USAAF, RAF WWII and USAF in Korea. Built 1944 and saw active service in India and Burma 1944-45. Bought to Australia in the 90s and rebuilt and restored to original configuration at Coolangatta in 1998. Warwick's owned it since 2010.
