I found this site while looking for some other photos and thought I'd share it with you.
A little way down 7th and 8th photos show some low level P-47's while about 2/5 of the way down the page shows what happens when you go too low but being in a jug still get home.

Loads of other nice photos too including a Short Sunderland doing a touch and go on land!

Nice one Lucky.
It appears to be some sort of camera cradle on the belly of the P-47N, and the droptanks appear modified.

One of my favourite low level shots,

Viewing the link reminded me of the saying,

"There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old,bold pilots"
