Old Crow

The P-51D Mustang was designed in America by North American Aviation to meet British requirements for a fast fighter in 1940.

This aeroplane is own and flown by the Scandanaviation Historic Flight and carries the markings of one of the 8th Airforce acees Clolonel Clarence "Bud" Anderson of the 357th Fighter Group.

It put up a grand show at the Southport Airshow last weekend, altghough the weather was a bit dull for decent photography during it's display.

Excellent picture and composition. You must invest quite some time in planning a shot.
Les Auld: Thansk Louis, not much planning for this type of shot, camera on auto and multiple exposure then follow through, with some luck you may get a usable image.
another cracker les.
Les Auld: Thanks Michael, the subject helps.

Fantastic crop, Les! I love it.
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment Ginnie, just cropped out lots of empty sky.
Nice Mustang. I use to be employed by a company that made gear for the model planes. Many of our customers made 1/4 models of this plane. It really is a classic old bird. Well Done.
Les Auld: Thanks Gail, there were model mustangs at the show as well, maybe they had parts from your old firm in them.
Wow - Wonderful shot ready for a book !
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment Zeb.
Great picture Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Bill.
That's a crackin shot Les, wish I had as good a one from our recent air show.
Les Auld: Thanks Davud, the aircraft perfoem over the beach at Southport and the crowd line is not far from the display line and this helps in getting some reasonable shots.
Nice shot of a great looking plane. All the best, Dave.
Les Auld: Too true David, a great classic plane, fast and good looking.
These are terrific Les. Keep them coming.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian.
