Shoot 'em up Boys. While the inside the Beltway knuckleheads dismantle our military, I think the WWII aircraft operators/museums will have a very good year on the circuit.

Glenn, is that a Skybolt? At first I thought it was a Pitt's but that perspective has me in doubt. If that is in fact a Skybolt, I need to buy the builder lunch/dinner/breakfast as I begin to put mine back together. The die has been cast, Chandler and I came back from an evening Cub flight a few days ago, he walked over to the Skybolt fuselage and said, "Papa, could you put this back together and take me for a loop and a roll?" What can you say to that request except, "I'll get right on it!"

The cowling work on that aircraft looks outstanding!

P-51C Princess Elizabeth arrived in the UK in a shipping container last week.
Believe this is to be displayed at the Duxford Spring Air Day on 26th May, possibly by the Horsemen.

Jim,

Looks like the guy who took these dusk / night A2Gs over JFK uses a Kenyon gyro going by the plate on the bottom of his camera visible in the pic of him.

Glenn,

the Kenyon Gyro & D800 combo seems to be working a treat.

A quick check shows that it is a Skybolt.

Hi Mark, Those are cool shots. I don't recognize the plate, but it looks like a Blad in his hand. Can't imagine the dialogue with the powers that be to get either a helicopter or a 182 in any of those positions. Must be Bloomberg's brother!

After that salvo of A2A from Glenn, I think I will hold off a while with my G2A from the show. Just doesn't hold a candle to his piston flavored goodness

If I'm correct she will stay for the flying legends also. but will be cool to see her again.
funny just received a decal set for a model kit presenting this P51C.

No worries Steve, knowing you do a lot of A2G, I knew you would appreciate that stuff.

BTW there's guys hiring helos to fly the VFR corridors above LAX & shooting A2As of the heavies on approach beneath them.

Guys with more money than they know what to do with, clearly.

I spent the morning yesterday at a local car club's monthly 'Coffee and Cars' meet-and-greet in a strip mall parking lot a few miles from my house. The Tesla got a lot of attention, so I didn't get around to see everything that showed up, but these two classics were just down the row from me and I managed to get a couple of detail shots.
