airplane-aviation-aerospace-wwii-jet fighter-piston-p47-thunderboltThis P-47 Thunderbolt is such a stunning airplane to see in person and to capture in High Dynamic Range. The Tallahassee Lassie was on display as part of the Flying Heritage Collection.

Aviation-History.com has this to say about the P-47.

“Built in greater quantities than any other US fighter, the P-47 was the heaviest single-engine WWII fighter to go into production and the first piston-powered fighter to exceed 500 mph. The Thunderbolt performed 546,000 combat sorties between March of 1943 and August 1945 and is considered the real forerunner of today’s multirole fighters.”

You can read the entire history and see the P-47 Thunderbolt airplane specs on their website.
