I don't think that there would be a pilot that would "dip a wing" in that altitude with a 70 year A/C Probably a photoshopm but still a nice pic P ΥΓ : Αυτό τόχεις δει υποθέτω... [link] και δεν είναι μούφα
hmm. I'm not so sure. The sun glare on both planes is showing it's in the same position. The reflection on the Mustangs body is the same as the floor colour too.
I don't see why this has to be shopped either. If you level the plane off, he's about the same height as a lot of other low fly passes I've seen before too. You'll probably find the pilot pulls up quite sharply just as they make this turn
It is truly a sharp photo. I don't doubt that the Mustang had flown that low. I just think that two pics were in some way merged; perhaps for the added affect. I, however, don't believe that an added affect was necessary. A Mustang flying that low is awesome by itself.
Jeez, it looks great but its so dangerous. There have been so many disasters at airshows, hot dog pilots are brilliant but not everyone who pays their entry fee or brings their kids wants to see or experience fire and death!
That has to photoshopped...the Stang isn't doesn't look like it was lined up to land/takeoff which is the only thing I could think of that they would be banking mere feet off the ground over the twin engine Cessna to avoid mr. golfcart. Sorry if I ruined the fun
Judging by how many accidents happen at air shows and the fact that the rudder turned to the right is good justification for the out-of-line orientation of the airplane this does seem genuine to me. The shadow of the plane agrees with me also. Must have been quite a moment for the pilot though.
If it is real that's some of the scariest moments I can imagine for an airshow. I witnessed the death of a pilot at one, he was flying a F-86 sabre and his jet cut out performing a low level loop & crashed just past the airfield in a fireball...awful to see an aviator die right before our eyes.
