    You 'HornDog' (B-24), FMJ!
    Go jump a 'Boxcar' (B-29), and find yourself a 'Sleepy time Gal' (B-17 I think).

    Which plane was the one that went down last year in Britain during an airshow?

    Had a customer once that needed forged parts for a warplane reconstruction project.  I had an old, burnt (saved from a scrap smelter) left side piece to rev-engy and make forging dies for a left+right piece and tooling.  When they were done, I got to see the finished, milled, product.  I think the whole run was 32 pieces plus proofs (or less).

    A few months later, I saw an article about a different guy reconstructing old warplanes using milled billet stock.   :facepalm  Yeah, that's OEM.

    I know which plane I'd rather fly in.   There's apparently good money in the reconstructing biz, for TONS of work and research and a bit of danger.  I like the new jets and toys and whatnot...they'll just never match the Mustangs and Corsairs, to me, for sheer awesome.

    That's Gunfighter in the foreground of the 4-ship pic.

    The other 2 are Moonbeam McSwine and a hybrid Old Crow that belongs to Jack Roush. Hybrid because it is a B model (razorback) but with a partial back-fin like they installed on the D models.

    Looks like Yankee Lady has a bit of an issue in number 2.

    I love the old warbirds because of the heritage. I love sitting around an old O-club bar, talking to a guy who's been flying longer than I've been alive, and listening to war stories. I love going to air museums and seeing the similarities in those old birds and our current ones. We've come a long way, but in certain respects, we haven't come very far at all. That's the heritage part, and that's what I love.

    Some pictures from my first Glider flight:




    Anyone know what kind of plane this is?




    The entire instrument panel. Clockwise from the top left: Airspeed indicator, altimeter, and vertical speed indicator.





    Another glider: we were up there so long that the company sent up another passenger flight.




    And now for something completely different:



    A little something I picked up at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, of all places.

    The sailplane looks like a Grob 103 - can't tell exactly but they are pretty popular.

    That particular one is a Schleicher ASK-21. The National Soaring Museum (where I flew) has 2 or 3 of them, plus one Schweizer 2-33, that they use for visitor flights.

    Yup.  Been up in a Schweizer - old school indestructible and pretty forgiving flyers.  Thanks for the pics - and the good memories.   :thumbup1

    My father was a pilot so by the time I was 8 years old I had been up in a wide variety of aircraft. A few years after his death I was able to take a flight in a glider, an experience I really enjoyed.

    I've never been up in a hot air balloon or an ultralight and hope I get the chance one day.
