    More, The piper cubs are part of the 75th anniversory of the piper cub. I never saw so many in my life there. The field was yellow with them and that does not include all the ones scattered around the rest of the airshow.

    Great stuff, Paul. Good to see the C-46 "Tinker Belle" out and about. The Mosquito looks great! A field full of Cubs was something else too. :thumbleft:

    Now Paul....listen very carefully....I am a Jedi Master...These are not all the pictures you are looking for, you will take many more...!

    Seriously mate, neat set of shots.

    I am now really depressed as I havent been to Osh since 2005, we've had pretty much non stop rain here for the past month and there you go posting cool pics of Warbirds against a blue backdrop and I'm suffering US Airsho withdrawal symptoms !!
