Man/woman and machine in harmony!

This is the P-51 scrambling off the runway, gear halfway up, its Merlin engine screaming for altitude, and in the moment it was caught, it reminds us of this aircraft's glorious history to rise to the fight as no one before it.

On his way to hunt on " Zeros " ))

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 8, 2008:
I love the old crow it's the best P-51 of the second world war nice flyin' Bud!

A visitor from France posted Mon December 17, 2007:
Superb angle, composition and focus (especially on a fast moving subject) all combine to produce a stunning photo of this special aircraft!

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 11, 2007:
Simply the most beautiful and aerodynamic design to ever grace aviations pages: the p51.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 14, 2007:
The beauty of the detail.

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 17, 2006:
Excellent composition. The pilot is NASCAR tycoon Jack Rouch, he has a second P-51; "Gentleman Jim". Just caught a shot of "Old Crow" myself at Oshkosh this year. Fantastic plane. Fantastic Photo.

A visitor from El Salvador posted Fri September 22, 2006:
Priceless oportunity for that pilot! Excelent shot, have you noticed the rudder position to keep this beauty (with all it´s 1,750 HP developed, and a big 4 blade prop) aligned on take off?

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon September 18, 2006:
This guy on the controls is the most privileged man in the world !!! I can hear the music ...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri July 21, 2006:
The greatest fighter of the WW2 and the best of the warbirds, there's no greater sound than a Rolls-Royce Merlin at takeoff, outstanding shot, I wish I could have been there!!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Sun April 30, 2006:
Wonderful shot! What an amazing take off!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 5, 2006:
Not only does it show the 51 as a lean aircraft. as well it displays the power it has well. an image roaring low over the ground, love it

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 30, 2006:
Just great.

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 26, 2006:
You can almost hear the roar of that Merlin V-12!

A visitor from Poland posted Sun March 12, 2006:
Very nice!

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 26, 2006:
Just awesome. Hear that Merlin! A Mustang is more welcome in German skies now than it was in 1945, I bet. Bet it brought back some memories to a few old Luftwaffe pilots.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 5, 2006:
What more can you say about this photograph of one of the most beautiful aircraft in the world. I saw this and all I could say was "Awesome".

A visitor from Spain posted Wed January 25, 2006:
As said in The empire of the Sun, this plane is the Cadillac of the Air. Is very beautiful.....

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 23, 2006:
This p-51 with the magical merlin engine and the Messerschmitt Bf 109 are my fav prop fighters of all time ! love this shot

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 9, 2006:
Really great shot of the best fighter of WWII!!!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sun January 8, 2006:
A beautiful pic of one of the nicest looking aircraft of the WWII era. Perfectly lined up in the frame.

A visitor from Panama posted Fri January 6, 2006:
Great picture of one of the best war airplanes in its time

A visitor from Australia posted Fri January 6, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 17, 2005:
SWEET! That's all I can say

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun August 28, 2005:
No comment, P-51 is the most beautiful plane for me. Wonderful shot

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 26, 2005:
During the WAR! i flew one of these, now listen here when i was 19 and flying these i was scared of being killed! but look at me now son, im 78 and still alive, old Hans couldn't kill me in this beautiful fighter.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 26, 2005:
This is one of the best picture of the mustang i will buy a print of it ... by the way I own one of these baby you should come and take some picture of it!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 26, 2005:
Beautiful photo of an old bird as the magnificent Mustang.
Great angle, great exposure and great setting.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 24, 2005:
What a great sight, lucky im not a german pilot during the war, or i would of hated this picture

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 22, 2005:
Shows the action and power and fantastic use of slow shutter speed.
It makes you hear the sound and to be be part of the scene.

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon August 22, 2005:
In the right moment, very sharp, with right set of exposure...thank you fpor sharing such a beauty!!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat August 20, 2005:
This shot is so great....i tried to took a shot of this too but my camera stroke :-( i like how the gear is going up in this low level departure

A visitor from Belgium posted Sat August 20, 2005:
Lovely shape of plane, great angle, action, great proprotation and wheelaction...superb!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat August 20, 2005:
Great photo of a great airplane .

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 19, 2005:
Brilliant use of a powerful zoom lens. Maybe the full wingspan should have been captured but other than that the image is crisp & clear.

A visitor from Australia posted Fri August 19, 2005:
Top shot. Excellent framing (cropping?)I actually like it with this background and its great depth of field.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 19, 2005:
The detail is very good but the only problem is that the background is a little distracting... I suppose that it isn't always possible to get solid background though. Great Job!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 18, 2005:
I love the exhaust plume behind the Mustang.
