Overview

 

      

Background
Continuing the testing of my Canon PowerShot-G2 digital camera, I turned my attentions to this restored P-47D Thunderbolt. I think this is only the second flying P-47 that I have seen in person. They are fairly rare, compared to something like the P-51 Mustang.

Again, I was taking some pictures just to test the capabilities on the camera, shooting into the sun and into shadow areas to see if the camera would figure out the proper lighting to capture the intended subject. It worked flawlessly. The following pictures have had minimal adjustments made for lighting or color balance. I did brighten a few of the pictures to better highlight what I wanted, but I did not have to do much.

I hope you find these pictures helpful. Considering the up-coming Tamiya release of a P-47D kit, these are likely to be of greater use in the coming months.
