Information or not, pic is worth a thousand words and 5 stars.

Great image Don! The P-51 a classic fighter nearly as famous as the Spitfire

Looking at the rudder I wonder if that isn't the CAF's P-51 in movie paint. It was way past the time for active P-51s.
Alan Brown
Great picture. Thanks!

Thank you so much Gavin and Peter. We may be pilots, passengers, engineers, mechanics, or enthusiast but the lore of Spitfires, Mustangs, Gooney Birds, Connies, and Cubs binds all of us together in this fascination of flight and photographing the "laughter silvered wings" with which we do it. We are all so fortunate to be able to live these lives that revolve around aviation. Both of you take truly inspirational photographs. Thanks again.

Thanks Alan and Bill. You are very possibly right, Bill. The field at one time housed a museum of flying "warbirds" in which you could take rides and even instruction.

Google "Isaac Newton Burchinal" to find out more about the crazy character who started off in the Coast Guard, became a crop duster, stunt pilot, Baptist preacher, and the saviour of many warbirds that would have otherwise gone to the scrappers. The founder of the Flying Tigers Air Museum, Paris TX.

A great story on his operation below, it runs to seven pages.

The B&W makes it that much more arresting and impressive.
