I was lucky enough to see some F4Us at the New England Airshow at Westover AFB a couple of months ago. They're beautiful planes. One of them taxied off the tarmac and into the display area and stopped literally 40 feet in front of me. Awesome, awesome plane. I wish that I could have gotten pictures like that, but my camera sucks.

I wonder if community members that attend airshows could wear some simple identifier -like a white ballcap with FB or Il2 written on the front with a sharpie - might be good. At least until some genius makes up a nice t-shirt or official hat or something.... I s'pose you could tell most of us by our pale green 'simmer skin', slurred speech caused by beer and exhaustion from waiting for PF and the bomber patch, three day beard stubble and the over eager warbird lust in our eyes,.. but a hat couldn't hurt.

Nice 'sair pics BtW Tagert - I work a half mile from Miramar airbase - the Blue Angels practice twice a day the week before the show starts so thats going to help me get through that week. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I had met him once before, thus remembered him.. He was leaning in on a mock P38 cockpit that was at ground level.. He had his arm leaning up on it trying to take a picture.. I walked up behind him and said DEEP and STERN SIR! PLEASE DONT TOUCH THE AIRCRAFT! He turned around and said.. Oh Im sorry I didnt mean to to... At which point he reconised me and told me to piss off! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
