Open canopy, and the wind (almost) in your hair!

Why would they fly the plane with the canopy open like this?

It was landing at an airshow

Very nice.

Not sure of the reason for the open canopy, but probably a security procedure.

In France, we add (many years ago !) some "Marine" Fouga Magister used on aircraft-carrier. As this jet-plane had no ejectable seat, the take-off (using the catapult) was done with the canopy open. In case of problem, as ejection was not possible, this ease the evacuation.
But seems no to be the case here, as the P-84 has two Martin-Baker seats.

That takes me back a bit....
