This is so well placed, great timing with that G in the background. Managed to keep the shutter speed high enough to preserve the B-52, but still blur the props a bit. I know how hard that is.

Here kittys!
The Bear and the Tiger. They would of dominated the skies, but for them to do so, the war would of had to last longer. Such mixed messages!

yeah, both of em would've made short work of Zeros, and given something like a George or Shinden a run for their money. Its funny how they were used in peacetime roles as well. Tigercats became fire spotters, and Bearcats became thoroughbred racers
