Does the elevator have the appropriate angle? Shadows look correct.

I held one of the poles for the "Mennen Special" at local airshow way back in my high thrill threshold youth.

The poles are plenty far enough apart if the airplane keeps it pretty much on the center line.

Was a rush when it came by.

Pay? I got free ticket to airshow.

They mixed some Mennen Aftershave scent in the smoke fluid and when it drifted over crowd, smelled just like the aftershave.

Few years later, plane and pilot demised in a crash.

With a WIDE runway, long distance to the subject, zoom all the way out and a small aperture, you will get that.
I understand that effect. However, I would expect that effect to equally influence the apparent length of the aircraft wing. How do you explain that the wing appears to be equal to half the runway width if the aircraft is over the center line?

With the telephoto effect, I would expect the aircraft wing to also appear to be very short and stubby (about 1/3 the size it appears). This makes it appear that someone doctored the plane in the photo.

Why is the pole closest to the camera transparent....

The shadow of the wingspan is not wide enuf.

Something is not what it appears..

It's an optical delusion.
The camera is following the plane so it's reasonably in focus while the stationary people are blury. Notice the height difference between the two guys and they are outside the shadow of the wings.

Nice work legoman67 but - - - - you left a bit of pole blur on the forward edge of the reference triangle on the starbord wing tip, the port reference triangle is missing and the canopy line is funny.

looking in the reflection of the plane on the cowl the sun looks to be almost over head shifted a little behind the camera, their is very small shadows casting off the both guys feet to the left and the shadow of the plane is shifted back a little in the same direction, could be photoshop but if the sun was nearly overhead but back far enough the guys wouldn't have much shadow as they do in the pic, and the plane being higher up, not touching the ground, and much larger than the people, would cast a distorted shadow because of the angle it was shot at. Just my opinion, I could be way off but it looks real and aside from the issue of photoshop, If it is real is it really the absolute craziest thing you've seen people do? I think their is alot more crazy things than a low flying plane with people standing by it, haha.

no smoke and it just doesn't seem like the prop is spinning. Even if you have a fast camera, there is still usually some blurring at the tips.
Depends on how you're shooting and the lighting conditions. Now this was taken on a brightly lit, sunny day which, even with 100 speed film, very fast shutter speeds can be used. If it was taken with a digital, it's possible that the shutter was 1/2000th or even 1/4000th. The fact that the two stationary objects are blurry tells you that the camera was panning when the shutter was tripped, which accounts for the plane being in perfect focus.

If the shutter was fast enough to stop the prop, there shouldn't have been stationary object blur since the prop is moving faster than the "stationary objects" (relative to camera motion).

That was my first thought as well. But in the first picture the prop is moving into/out-of the plane of the pic. In other words, it's moving very slowly in pixel space. In that pic I can believe there would be more blur to the stationary objects on the ground than to the prop. If we could see the plane head-on that would be more telling.
