Very beautifull P-47 vintage color pic over England

P-47D Thunderbolt “Ann K” flown by Lt. Robert B. Campbell, Jr. Over England, summer of 1944

Just looks so fresh and recent!

Thanks for the heads-up! Bonus with that is a great color shot of Kittyhawk AK827/N1223N taken when it was "derelict at Pompano Beach Airport, 1960-1964" per the Registry (Scott, see if you can get permission to use it?).

Found 2 other pics from the same flight in b&w. One of them here:

My spidey-sense is tingling the 'colorized' warning also.

It's colorized. The B&W original can be seen at the first link posted by Dan K.
