    Thanks Terry,

    Yeah it would be cool if all three show up but Im just hoping for one as last year one was suppose to show up but had engine trouble. Fifi is another Im hoping makes it along with the British Swordfish. My son and I are actually thinking of camping there this year but we will see. We have about 4 weeks to decide though my wife is in no shape to camp though she my prove me wrong.

    Wow, 3 190s? That'd be something! Didn't realize VWOC's Swordfish was up and at 'em.

    Thanks guys for the warm welcome back, there is still at least 4 weeks before the airshow so there is still time to plan for many of you if you want to come. :)

    Well if any one changes there mind let me know and we will see if we can hook up. Here is the info I found so far the Fw-190's that are suppose to show up.

    Friday, 7/29/2011 - 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM - Warbirds In Review - Map
    Bob Hoover FW190 Spitfire - This is sure to be one of the favorites for 2011. Bob Hoover will join us for a second time. This program will focus on Bob Hoover's World War II service with the appearance of two FW 190s and the Seafire (Spitfire with a hook). One of the new build Flug Werk FW 190s is owned by Dan Kirkland and the other is owned by Rudy Frasca. The Seafire is owned by Wes Strickler. Bob Hoover will speak about the significance of these aircrafts to him in World War II and the owners will speak about the acquisition and restoration of these unique aircrafts. Autograph session will take place afterwards.
    Presented by: Bob Hoover

    All the best
    Paul
