I was out in the Pine Nut mountains in western Nevada the other day photographing mustangs, when I see this bird flying into my mustang shot. He flew over the mustangs then gave me a fly-by. It was only about 15 yards away from me. I didn't realize what it was till I got home and looked at it on the computer. I was really stoked to get this shot!

I don't see any P-51s there.
But it would be cool to photoshop that image as what you see looking out an airliner window.
