    great shot, its good to see the older planes are still around.

  • Jason- these and other older planes are featured at air shows all the time… quite a following of vintage aircraft owners around the world. You may want to check if your local air field has events like the one this plane was visiting. And, please take a look at my “Aircraft” portfolio, by clicking on the word “Aircraft” to the right of these comments! Thanks!

    What a spectacular composition! The cloud cover (in typical Florida fashion) really conveys an epic backdrop fit for such a thoroughbred WWII hero such as the P51. An instant fave for me!

  • Thanks, Ted … I don’t get too many opportunities to shoot pictures of these wonderful old aircraft… but whenever I do, I’ll make certain to submit them to the group!
