I was photographed by @airbaer150 (Mike Baer) at C09 the other day and wasn't aware until someone told me!

It was the perfect angle, wasn't it? Excellent shot! I'd have a framed enlargement made of that one. Always a cool feeling seeing this paint scheme and having it remind me of flying in the actual P-51 with Elmer Ward. That used to be my wallpaper before I started building my RV-8.

Google your N number from time to time (registration number for those not in USA). I've found photos I didn't know about. Also found some oddly related aircraft registrations, since Google is not perfect. Fun stuff.

That is a great picture at the perfect angle. Quite a snazzy paint job! I see you are probably a UAL guy based in ORD? I retired last year and am so glad I am not commuting to work any more. 22 years getting on RJs to go to work was not my idea of fun but now I am a full time RV pilot so life is good!
