This shot of a P-51 Mustang was taken at the 2007 Thunder Over Michigan Air Show held at Willow Run Airport near Ypsilanti, Michigan. Each year the Yankee Air Museum hosts an air show featuring various military aircraft as a fund raiser for their museum. In 2007 the show featured B-25 bombers and the headline act was the Blue Angels.
