A full prop disc on Sally! Magnificent. Do you know if she'll be flying at the Zwartkops air show?

For info to get a prop disc on a P-51 in flight you need to be at 1/80th or less

Thanks. Pretty much what I calculated, but I haven't managed to get that low (I run out of aperture, even at ISO50), or to get sharp shots at anything less than 1/150th either. I guess being pretty much smack head-on helps a bit, but still a great achievement.
