Hi all,

My neighborhood is just across the river from a small regional airport that is hosting a warbirds air show this weekend. Since last eavening my house has been buzzed by B17's, B25's, Corsairs, Warhawks, Mustangs, Hellcats, etc. etc.

Here is a link to the event if you are interested (How could you not be and be here?)

Warbirds (http://www.wotn.org)

Going to the Airshow tomorrow with my Digital Camera so expect mucho pics. I may request assistance posting the images as my personal webspace is a paltry 20Mb http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hey Loki,

My son and I just returned from the afore mentioned show...what a blast! Most interesting plane we saw was a Bell P-63 Kingcobra! Talked with the pilot a bit(chap from Houston Tx.) Also...as the B-17 would taxi in after a sorti, the wing tip would all but pass over our heads...the taxiway was that close to the crowd line. I (hopefully) got some nice pics, but alas I'm still in the real film era...so will leave it to you to share a digital record for all here.........I'll look for you online Loki...nice to see someone local!

Salute All!

Here are the first of the pics. Not going to post all of them tonight as I'm itching for some stick time, and also to work on a pacific mission in FMB that I'm building from ground up

We'll start with the HellDiver in honour of the upcoming PF release! These are pics of the only flying model Helldiver left on Earth. Of particular interest was the fact that the real guns were still in place (although deactivated) and could easily be seen thru the wheel wells.. Enjoy !!

I knew these were big planes but, HOLEY COW!!! It's something else to stand next to it

Look at the size of those knuckles!

I definately want to try out the Gunners seat in PF on this bird after having sat in it. Just wish they were twin fifties,, (errr maybe it's better that they are .30's!)

Some detail from the gunners position

Here's that .50 I was mentioning... Even with Flash on the wheel well was kinda dark. Should be able to photoshop it brighter though...

Well, that's it for tonight... More to come, P-40, P-51, P-63, B-17, B-25 and more!

I'm a dot!

Morning everyone!

Just checked my puny personal webspace.... It is FULL. No more posts unless I take the SB2C pics down or someone else volunteers to host them.

Anyone willing to host some high res Jpegs of Warbirds?

I love the hi-res stuff, but you really should resize them for posting. You'll use less webspace and we will be able to see the entire pic without scrolling.

Thanks for them though. Good stuff. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
