A flyover by an Antonov-2 at a WWII battle reenactment. Although the AN-2 was not actually made until just after WWII ended, this large biplane still looks period appropriate to those not familiar with it.

My Flickr meetup group works with the reenactment groups to photograph this event from the inside. I was with a group of rangers, awaiting our turn to get called into the "battle" when this plane made a couple of passes directly overhead.

I think this one was underappreciated. I gave it a 7!

Beautifully captured aerobatics. The smoke is just superb.
