I've always thought the Checker tail clan, had some of the coolest squadron markings, so I opted for a shot of this P-51 from it's distinctive checker-tail.

"This photograph represents what I like most about attending EAA's AirVenture," says Madison. "As someone who lives and breathes aviation, I spend the other 51 weeks of the year trying to explain my passion to those who don't understand aviation. When you arrive at Oshkosh, you're instantly surrounded by thousands of people who love aviation just as much as you do."
