    Cool combo! Not sure if you were looking for critique, but there is no real sense of motion in the image.

    Amazing seeing the two of them together.

    With a solid background(no clouds ) and two aircraft going at 400+ knots, a focal length of 400mm on a 15lbs camera / lens setup handheld and panning... no, maybe not a sense of motion but what the hell give it a go and see what you can do;) Not bitching... but I thought it was a nice clean shot of two iconic mothballed warbirds in flight.

    Just wanting to share that's all

    Oh it is, and not complaining at all. Amazing sight ...

    Criticism was not meant to be negative ... just an observation.

    Woah. Just out of curiosity, how the hell'd the pilots manage to get those two together? That's like catching a Morris Minor and an Aston Martin DBR9 at the same corner (forgive the quintessentially English comparison).

    Still, nice!

    Holy hell :lmao:.....I love the combo. I personally would have gone with a slightly different crop but great shot none the less.

    Ironically I recently used this pair of aircraft in an explination of my thought process as to why there was no war boom with the current wars going on.

    Good clean shot, with good exposure.

    What would have made this an excellent shot would be if you had prop blur on the P-51. Helicopters and prop planes just do not look right frozen.

    You would prob have to shoot between f/16-f/22 and drop your shutter down to about 1/125-1/160 and then use your panning skills, which is must easier said than done.
