Mustang vs. Bearcat: Mano a Mano.

The P-51D “Dago Red” (44-74996) and the F8F-2 “Rare Bear” (Bu. 122629) face to face as usual. They’ve been seen each other as air racers and record holders for quite a long time….and counting.
I must confess I have a bittersweet feeling with this kind of highly modified “Warbirds” racers: they’re exciting to see that’s for sure, but they seem like suspended in time still employing these 70 years old airframes.

An incredibly superb photo, my friends.
