    Does anyone know anything about this picture? Is it a real photo of a P-47 letting off steam? The photo is so clear sharp that it can't possibly be a real "in flight shooting" photo (their is no motion blur)...what was this photo for?

    :eating: :coffee:

    Any chance you could re-size it?
    I'm guessing a PR shot for the new Republic fighter?
    I have a similar shot demonstrating the P-47's firepower but it's on the ranges ie on the ground

    I think I saw this in a Life magazine from 1942 or 1943. Just a demonstration of the MG's firing with tracers.

    I'm a little embarrassed to say I found it doing a "google search" for the "P-47"...It came with a "Wikipedia link"...that's it, no other info. :shock:
