Aero L-39 Albatros &North American P-51 Mustang

@  Andrews AFB, MD

May 2011

The Heritage Flight during the 2011 Joint Services Open House airshow comprised a P-51 and L-39.  The Joint Service Open House and Air Show has been held yearly at Andrews AFB since the 1950s, and switched to a biannual schedule in 2012.  Andrews is the home base of two Boeing VC-25A aircraft with the call sign Air Force One when the President is on board.  Nikon D300 w/300mm, processed with Aperture.

  1. Cool shot. I’m fascinated by the similarity in wing planform between these two different-generation (and different mission) aircraft. North American must have got something very right with the P-51.
