The view: “Sharing the Sky” over Reading Air Show 2019 (KRDG)
The pilot: Bob Murphy
The photographer: Larry Baum, Ithaca, NY (KITH)
The airplane: P-51D
The mission: Photos of Reading Airshow 2019 – with a surprise
The memory: I hadn’t been to the Reading WWII Weekend at KRDG in many years. This year, there were plenty of fabulous WWII aircraft including “Tiger’s Revenge,” a P-51D, along with WWII veterans, reenactors, and several special events commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day. As I was going through my photos picking out the best shot of each airplane in the show I stumbled across this shot of the P-51 along with a small winged friend sharing the sky. I’d love to say, it was planned, but it wasn’t. Never saw the bird while making the photo.
