I enjoyed seeing this well restored airplane and taking shots of it a few days ago.

I never flew in one of these but I did get to walk onto one during WW2. The USAAF had an airfield near to Peterborough, where I was staying. and the airmen laid on a tour of the station for us kids. It was the first time I tasted peanut butter.

Brigham, that sounds like a nice memory and made me smile.
Us kids liked the Americans. We had sweet (candy) rationing, but the USA kept it's troops well supplied with chocolate and chewing gum. There was a bit of friction between some of our soldiers and the US troops. They had a lot more money and their uniforms were made of very comfortable material, whereas our lot had very rough material. At the end of the day though, we realised that they were here to help us in our hour of need, and we will always be grateful for that.

Nice LF.....

Try slowing down your shutter speed to 1/320 or less on a piston engine if you can hold your camera steady. Will
do wonder for the props.
