The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades. The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation. By the end of its production, nearly 10,000 B-25s in numerous models had been built. These included a few limited variations, such as the United States Navy's and Marine Corps' PBJ-1 patrol bomber and the United States Army Air Forces' F-10 photo reconnaissance aircraft.
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission. The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on 26 October. (From Wikipedia)

Two powerful and beautiful planes in the same frame in a good angle of view. The light gives very good colors and sharpness of details.

and thats a sweet color combination too, with the silver, red, and black with the white star.
doesn't get much better than that.
and of course having the classic Bomber is a great secondary subject.

I think I have seen this duo at the Cleveland Air Show in Sept. '12, I'll have to look in my files.
Great view of the two flying so close together.
