I recently took my 1/5 scale P-40 to get pictures of it with a full scale P-40 at Sun n Fun here in Florida. I got there early but not early enough. As we arrived, we found the pilot there and ready to start the engine. He gave it a couple tries, the engine turned over but wouldnt start. He asked me to turn the prop to get it on the magneto and I did, it started that time and off he went into the sunrise. I thought I would share a few of the pictures i was able to get. I at least was able to get my truck into the picture.
   I have always enjoyed taking aviation related pictures, if anyone is interested, I have many posted at the following link. They span from the mid 20s to now. Almost all were taken by my grandfather or myself of anything from WW1 era DH-4s to F-16s.
