1st Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
P-47 Thunderbolt 'Snafu' lands after displaying at Duxford, England.

"This image was taken at Duxford's 'Flying Legends' air show in England," says Cleaver. "I attended the show to see this particular P-47 Thunderbolt. It is one of the only two Curtiss-built examples in the world. It's a classic American design, and is an unusual subject to see on the U.K. air show circuit. I also learned that this particular airframe had been sold abroad, and this was one of the last opportunities to see 'Snafu' flying in the U.K."
