This image is un-cropped from the Great Bend air show a few weeks ago. This Navy SNJ was taking off and I was in the front row with a zoom lens and was able to get this shot. I got to fly in and fly the Army Air Corps version of this plane a few years back, the T6 Texan. There is no difference between the 2 except for the color and designation of SNJ or Texan. They were both used for training pilots in WWII and are quite capable of acrobatic maneuvers and this pilot performed some of them.
