The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. Designed and built in just 117 days to a specification issued to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission, the Mustang first flew in Royal Air Force (RAF) service as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. In later versions it was also used as a bomber escort, employed in raids over Germany; in these roles the Mustang helped ensure Allied air superiority from early 1944. The P-51 was in service with Allied air forces in Europe and also saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. (From Wikipedia)

Hello Eleu,

Very nice shot of this P-51 in an angle that shows much details of the airplane with an almost stopped propeller. Good colors under this blue sky.

Have a nice weekend

Hi Eleu,
A very sharp capture of this aircraft in flight with the sole propeller in such a rotation motion!
A nice tilt with perfect details even of the pilot!
Nice colors and a wonderful reflection on the propeller.
Very neat work.

Great shot Eleu. I love the way you always manage to capture such sharp detail and still see and feel the whir of the propellers. Well done. Great color and detail and a nice pov. TFS , Lori

Another superb capture from the aircraft with such great details, Eleu!
Great focus and nice clarity. The contrast between the darker aircraft and the blue sky.
Well caught.
