Republic P-47G Thunderbolt
@ Chino Airport, Chino, CA
This is my first photograph of a flyable Thunderbolt. From this angle, the wide stance and gaping cowling reinforce the brutishness of the Jug. What a great airshow Planes of Fame was, definitely recommend it to everyone. First flown in 1941, the last P-47 in active duty was retired in 1966 from the Peruvian Air Force. All ‘G’ models, like this one, were license built by Curtiss-Wright. HDR image.
