  • Outstanding Warbirds collection (photos)

    I was sent this link by a friend of mine whom used to be my EAA line boss when I worked the Stuart Airshow. The crew I worked with specialized in line support for the EAA Warbirds, at Stuart we also did crowd clearance for taxiing Galaxies, Hornets, Black Hawks, pretty much - you name it.

    We pretty much specialized on the, Warbirds which was fun, because the oldtimers knew the quirks of all the different aircraft. We worked 'active' public flightlines where there was a lot of 'civilian' activity - and some of the old Warbirds have a strange habit of dumping fuel and igniting it on the taxi line. Ahhh.. the memories... :)

    There are some great shots of classic birds and some pretty good WW2 reenactors.

    Pick your favorites!

    The Spitfire in Asia colours!

    Coor. That has to be the best.

    Thanks for that, added to my pics.

    It's good to these planes flying around.

    Second has to be the Lightning.

    After that the woman in the half-track. :O

    Another coor ^^

      I especially like the P-38 Lighting.
      It got an interesting form.

        You better like the P-38. It's aerial sex in mechanical form. I've loved that plane since I was a kid. Been lucky enough to sit in three different versions and ride in one (sat in the J, the L, and rode in the radar operator seat in the M which was the only variant with two seats). I fully intend to buy one at my earliest possible convenience.

            I thought about buying an Aero L-39 a few years ago... it's not the cost, it's the maintenance.
