First I would like to say I think it is a good picture for a couple of reasons, first the back story is fantastic, second the aircraft is pretty nicely exposed, and crisp enough to see the pilot waving most imprortant, the exhaust following a spiral course across and down the fuselage and that the pilot either had full right stick, unlikely, or full flaps so the chopper could keep up, more likely..
I hope you got a really good rate for your mother in law to do this as we owe so much to ladies like her who put themselves at risk to get the planes back in the air, often taking no more precaution than putting on their tin hat when most other civilians would be taking to a shelter, I'm pleased to hear that at the great age of 90 she was well enough to take to the air to see such a sight.
Do you know where it was done, and is the pilot called Charlie Brown?
This shot might not compare with many of the images that have been posted, but it has a nice story behind it. My mother-in-law was a flight mechanic in WW2, and has a thing about Spitfires. For her 90th birthday, we put her up in a helicopter alongside one. This is the pilot waving at her. (The shot is my son's, not mine.)
