Yep, that is her. That was the first time she ever joined up with the B-17 and B-24. Rob Collings (who is now the director of the Foundation) was 16 at the time and came home on her. She had a documented 100 combat missions in Korea under those markings and name you see in the picture. Unfortunately, the next year a new pilot for us received get home-it us and proceeded to rotate on take-off with a visibly failing right engine. She tried to torque roll and ended up sliding on her belly for a considerable distance. The video is on YouTube.

Wow! Interesting how it's open season on the American citizen, but looking into congress meets with an immediate investigation...."You can't make this stuff up!"

Now, the amount of talent in this thread is staggering to me. I have a request. My favorite warbird is the Hellcat. I have not really seen a good photo of one in flight. Any of you have one?

Hi Kevin. That's a rare bird for sure. My Dad flew them and trained out of Glenview NAS. In all th years I've been photographing, the only live one that I have seen is in the Naval Museum in Pensacola. They fished one out of Lake Michigan awhile back, but I don't know where it is now.

I'm sure someone has a better shot but here's mine. We got hampered by heat haze and dust at El Centro where this was takenů

Jim, this already has your initials on it. Since the photos that I have been posting the last couple of day have been scanned, I have noticed that some of the edges look like someone took a hammer to them. They appear to be wavy. Even the edge of props look rather wavy as you can see in this image. Could this be caused by the scanner itself?

Hm, that could be a scanner artifact.

Here's a photo of a Hellcat in flight... not a _good_ photo, but a photo...

Jim,

I heard about the Hellcat being pulled from the lake but not sure when. I believe she is now on display at the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, FL.

They also fished out a PBY on April 24, 2009, see photo's below. I was there for that one. I believe these planes were all part of a naval flight training program based in the Great Lakes during he war. Photo's aren't of the greatest quality but enjoy.

An Aerostar 601P crashed yesterday southeast of Denver. Looks like the pilot was buzzing something on the ground and lost control: over-banked, nose fell through the horizon, rolled back, pulled, got an accelerated stall, game over. Really glad the pilot was the only occupant and that he didn't take out anyone on the ground.

Ahhh The Death Star, they are fun to fly but you don't want to get behind in one. I flew boxes in them, a really nice a/c.
