Curtiss P-40


The local airport is hosting a collection of WW-II era planes this weekend. The word was that they would land between 1:30 and 2:00 yesterday afternoon. I headed over to the airport and parked at the end of the runway waiting for them to land. I clicked a few shots of modern private planes landing and from the results was sure I’d get some great images of the antique planes in flight. Instead, the wind changed direction just before they landed and I was at the wrong end of the field. I made this image of a fighter when it reached the end of the runway to turn around.

      I havenโ€™t seen that one. Iโ€™ll check it out. I just watch an old movie called A Bridge Too Far. They had a great scene of scores of old planes with soldiers parachuting from them. Cheers.

    Ah, that’s too bad that the wind changed and forced the pilots to land from the other end of the runway. But you you got this fantastic plane and shot anyway. I’m really amazed that the planes are still flying!!
