    Well today I got to go to Airventure with the family today. Im very tired and sunburned. Eric you have to get out here one year. Boy did they change things. Most for the best. Great airshow though some of the aircraft that where suppose to show where no shows. The Bf-109 didnt show along with the Japanese Zero. There was a surprise though and I have never seen this before 5 P-40's where on the grounds including one that was shown for the first time on Monday.

    Any way here are some pictures in no particular order.

    Enjoy!!!

    Very Cool! Did you see a very clean L-39 there? If you go back and catch the owner, tell him you know me. I do work on his aircraft.

    Unfortunently you couldnt get to them, they were farther down the runway because there where so many T-28's. Since they where down farther off the run way they where off limits to any one but the pilots that flew or owned them.

    Great stuff. I have been wanting to get back there again. I really wanted to go this year for the 60th anniversary of the T-28. Thanks for the lineup shot of them. I am hoping to get out there for it in the next couple of years and spend the week there.

    Nice pics Paul
    that looked like a hot day to be standing around in a leather flying helmet

    Out of interest, how many P-40s showed up? There seemed to be a fair few. Those two civilian jobs, joined together at the wing, could they/it actually fly? Or was everything controlled from one cockpit?
