Bar none the best airshow I have ever attended.

Beyond seeing 100 odd P51s of all models, including a rare dual control P51B and a P51A, there was the Canadian Lancaster, 2 P38s, a P63 Kingcobra, various aerobatic aircraft, A really moving tribute to the Tuskeegee Airmen, a couple of whom I met, and the absolutely jaw dropping F22 Raptor Demo flight.

Had the pleasure to meet many of the fold from the forum here and can now connect voices on comms with faces.

Those who did not or could not go missed a very rare and wonderful thing.

Oh yeah, HK_Fatboy flew all the way from Hong Kong to attend!!!!

Bearcat, you shoulda been there.

More pics later.

Stop it you're killing me... I had one shot at getting there.. and things beyond my control snatched it away... so... what can I say.

You are not alone in that; fate dealt others (like me) the same card. Darnit.
