This T-6 owner-pilot loves to put on a show for an appreciative crowd. I've seen this particular plane at most of the regional airshows.

Gorgeous photo! I love the tail effect giving a tremendous feeling of impatience and the line of the ground. Never been to such a show and enjoyed thoroughly all 4 pics!

Actually, they had landed after a performance and he spun out on the taxiway and kicked in the smoke machine when he did so. These have smoke devices on them specifically for use in airshows. Here's some shots of them performing that I considered for the "best of" challenge but didn't use:

The Texan? Wow, this must be engine start :). I love the sound of these old engines on startup.

Aircraft burnouts? Great shot, the smoke itself is interesting but doesn't obscure too much of the airplane.
