I go for the P-51. T.B.

A visitor from - posted Thu March 19, 2009:
Are you kidding? just to see these two together like this is awe inspiring.a perfect example of the baddest and best from the past with the baddest and best from the present.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 4, 2009:
Wow, that F-22 looks like it's bigger than an F-14 and those are huge! i love the contrast between the old and the very new, but it makes you wonder, what are they testing right now, the f-22 was tested in 1992! 5* this is a very crisp photo

"Twenty bucks says the Mustang's going to win"

Great photo Adam

The Raptor is my favorite plane

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 16, 2008:
I like how this picture shows the difference between old and new military tech

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 9, 2008:
Best fighter prop with the best fighter jet

A visitor from Germany posted Fri June 27, 2008:
Wow! I never knew that the raptor is THAT big! He looks really dangerous, compared to the tiny little mustang in the front :-)

Great shot!

A visitor from India posted Mon June 23, 2008:
Wow ... the best of two different generations

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat June 14, 2008:
Great shot love the contrast between the two.

Two beautiful birds from two different eras. Great shot.

Raptor vs Mustang!

Preciosa

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 3, 2008:
The p-51 is still the most gorgeous fighter to ever grace the skies...

A visitor from Bosnia And Herzegovina posted Wed November 7, 2007:
Great comparison... Perfect moment ! 5* from me

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri August 3, 2007:
I'm thinking the Raptor won this race. :-)

A visitor from - posted Thu July 19, 2007:
Simply best combination of time!
Love it!

Two of my most favorite planes especially the F-22

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun May 6, 2007:
Showing a war bird of the past and a war bird of the future, good combo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat March 10, 2007:
A superb shot showing the huge leap in aviation technology in the past half century! It's quite amusing to notice that although the aircraft and its technology have grown in size, the space devoted to the pilot in the cockpit seems to have not!

A visitor from Denmark posted Sat November 18, 2006:
Great composition and sharpness

A visitor from Hungary posted Mon September 25, 2006:
Honestly, I prefer the Mustang. Anyway, nice shot 5*

Absolutly "The Best" for each time. But I really fall in love in the old Mustang !

A visitor from Spain posted Fri September 1, 2006:
Last 60 years airframe advance showed in this photograph

A visitor from Norway posted Thu August 31, 2006:
Great. 2 of the best aircrafts ever made.

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 12, 2006:
Good angle on the shot shows the relative sizes of the two aircraft. Both birds are clean, too, so they're really shown off at their best.

Here's a suggestion for A.net: I'd buy a poster of this shot. If y'all would share the proceeds with the photogs, everyone would win: the photogs for greater exposure on this site, A.net would get some cash, and I'd have a cool pic on the wall. How about it?

A visitor from - posted Wed August 9, 2006:
This is such a clear, sharp and well lit shot showing the old and the new, that still has some pretty good prop blur, and the overlap is perfect - well done.

A visitor from France posted Tue August 8, 2006:
This plane is good

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 11, 2006:
Sweet light, contrast, clarity, focus and an incomparable subject matter. Would have been perfect without the writing across the center of the photo. Very distracting.

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 5, 2006:
My husband is a pilot instructor and I'm sending him this awesome shot. M.J.Hurley Brant

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 20, 2006:
The best plane in the 40s and the best plane now flying together wowww!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 18, 2006:
Two well thought out planforms, as well as beautiful to watch in flight,

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 12, 2006:

A visitor from Germany posted Thu May 11, 2006:
Past and present. Really nice to watch. Thanks for sharing with us!

The P51 is obviously "the beauty"

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 9, 2006:
One of the graetest war birds of all times next to the next generation fighter, a truly amazing picture

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Unbeliavable!!!!just see and dream!!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Both the past and the future are displayed.
What a stunning Fighter. Too bad the watermark is just in the middle of it.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Wonderful picture!, you are right it is really a big contrast!

A visitor from Italy posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Great photo!! Amazing detail!

Just excellent! well done, congrats.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 9, 2006:
I was at the Sun 'n Fun airshow and actually have video footage of this heritage flight. Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Amazing photograph. I've been looking for one like this for many years! Next time, put the watermark at the bottom of the page . . . I'm sure many people, like me, would have it as their desktop if it weren't plopped in the middle of the pic.
AMAZING work!

A visitor from Serbia And Montenegro posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Wow what a shot!!!Amazing.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Very nice pic! Your right Adam planes have really changed from 50+ years ago.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
I believe they call this evolution...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Five stars.... just a nice picture

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Composition, exposure, and subject. Color is great.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon May 8, 2006:
85% of great aviation photography is being at the right place at the right time, with the right gear. 10 % is waiting for the right shot and composing it well. And 5% is sheer dumb luck. Look at how the prop has been caught at the perfect position. See how the Mustang's right wing D-Day stripes continue the line of the Raptor's strake, and how the right tailplane of the P-51 stands out in such contrast against the tail of the jet.
This is a "magic" shot -Adam you should be producing this as a poster and selling it at airshows.

A visitor from Poland posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Wow, it's a great photo

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon May 8, 2006:
It's amazing how even after fifty years, the P-51 still is a wonderful plane.

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon May 8, 2006:
...and yet, the way we get the planes up in the air is still the same aerodynamics! They could do their homework back in the 1940s, the Mustang is still a hot machine..! This photo is spectacular. Thanx a lot! /Joz in Sweden

A visitor from Belgium posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Very nice pic.
Only 4 stars though, due to too much 'airliners.net' ruining the dynamics of this beautiful image.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
I like the use of the watermark for once!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Awesome Shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Lovely shot Adam... beautifully executed!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon May 8, 2006:
It would be better if there were one more Tomcat!

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Is that a twin seat Mustang?

A visitor from Austria posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Excellent picture!

let's just hope those new engineering marvels never be used in a war (hint:iran)...

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Amazing shot. It gets all the awards,

#1

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
The F-22 looks positively alien next to the P-51, but neither loses any asthetic appeal to the other. Both are beautiful, functional, deadly looking airplanes. Great capture of the contrast.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 8, 2006:
Wowww... top 2 planes on my list. Great shot! *****
