    Ok, so here is the deal....

    We all go to airshows.

    I assume that the P-51 Mustang is probably the most common fighter plane around at these shows.

    We like to take pictures.

    So, whenever anyone goes to an airshow this year, get a pic of a P-51 and post it here. I want to see how many different Mustangs there are and also we can track a few as they move about the country.

    To get the ball rolling, here is a pick of myself, B17Engineer and Toughombre at Reading in 2010.

    Lets have some fun!!

    Great Idea Chris! Haven't been to an air show in a while so all mine are 35mm prints. I'll have to dig them out this weekend and scan them.

    Great idea...but a scary one (I've close on 3000 +pics of the '51 taken at various shows here in the UK and the States, including the GOML 2007 event) as this could be a very big thread !. I'll put these ones forwards for starters

    We're off to a great start! Now, throughout the year, if we can get pics with the members in them, at the show!

    Mustangs aplenty at Chino 2010. I'll be attending 2012, and hopefully there will be as many to view.

    Unfortunately, we don't have the huge arishows up here in Redding like alot of you folks do, so my collection of Stangs is almost pitiful.

    But I'll contribute what I have:
