It's the Bernard V.4, a racing aircraft. The V.4 was actually a land adaptation of the Bernard H.V.120 seaplane racer.

"Waist Deep in the Big Muddy" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waist_Deep_in_the_Big_Muddy) instantly came to mind.

The last of the few: Photographer captures pin-sharp images of the final 55 airworthy Spitfires using just a handheld camera
  • Air-to-air photographer John Dibbs spent years hanging out of fighter planes to capture stunning shots of Spitfires
  • Using skill and experience of former RAF pilot Tim Ellison, Dibbs flew to within 15ft of the hugely iconic planes
  • Battled extreme wind and noise to shoot through open canopy with handheld camera to take remarkable images
