Yeah, I have to say that I like the WWII era planes the best. This is a great airshow for these planes. It's run by the the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group and they operate out of a small turf airfield. I've been to this show 3 years in a row now.

I've gone to maybe 5 or 6 airshows in the last 5 years. This one is put on every year and I think it's my favorite. I like fighter jets and all but the older planes seem to be more interesting to me.

I was using about 1/200 shutter speed for these shots. Seems to work out nicely for prop blur and still let me get some good sharp shots panning.

This P-51 was also accompanied by a truck that was showing a 30 min documentary about the Tuskegee Airmen and this plane restoration. The sad thing is that the man who was instrumental in it's restoration crashed it in I think 2006 which also killed him. But it's a credit to the group that restored it that they decided to pick up the pieces and restore it again after the crash. They also charge $1500 to anyone who wants to take a 30min flight in it as a passenger.
