airplane pic, +1; in focus, +1; not so common angle, +1; airplane pic, +1. wait- i said that twice.
no worries, it's an airplane pic.

when i was shooting with film, i was happy with one exposure out of 30 on a roll.
still saving pennies to go digital, so i don't know my own digital happiness ratio yet.
you handle fast-moving subjects with ease, and you have a good eye for the timing of the shots.

thanks for sharing your work.

I really like this photograph of yours, Toby, so thanks for posting it!  I'm not a big P-51 fan, due to their tedious over-representation at air shows and in photography; but this one's an earlier model, hence my appreciation.  Wouldn't it be excellent to see one of these? Keep up the good work!

There is more than one Allison powered Mustangs flying in the US. In fact back in 2002 one of them came to the UK for Flying Legends, technically it was an A-36 Apache because it was one of the dive bombing variants but I remember that occasion well because we had something like 8 or 9 Mustangs there that day. That's a good amount for Duxford.

Not my shot because it was long before I started shooting but I found this of it at Duxford. www.flickr.com/photos/aerowebs…

Didn't realize there was more than one, but a quick Google seems to suggest there are 4!

I was wrong it is actually the The Collings Foundation that ownes the second A-36 not Rod Lewis. www.airplane-pictures.net/phot…

That sounds about right, I know that there are at least two  A-36s, the Friedkin example which came to Duxford and also I believe Rod Lewis, owner of Glacier Girl also has one. As for P-51As Plane's of Fame had one called Mrs Virginia and I think there is also one known as Polar Bear too.
