  1. Too close for comfort is correct. Especially if the photo was snapped by a parachute occupant.

  2. It is a close shot, but man what a great picture.

    1. The Wildcat was a decent plane but the Zero was way better it shot down a bunch of Wildcats! Now the Hellcat, that was a BIG improvement and shot down more Zeros than any other plane in the Pacific theater!!! grayman

    2. And, yet, more Zeros were shot down by Wildcats than the reverse...

  5. There is a spcl B-25 out there with the tail-gunner position opened up to house one fearless individual with photo equipment.........that;s usually how you get these warbird dead-on shots!

    1. “Executive Sweet” is the 25 I think you’re referring too. Flew out of Van Nuys airport.
