    Paine Field is home to Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection, John Sessions' Historic Flight Foundation, and also is home to Boeing's final assembly plant for their 747-8, 767, 777, and 787. Every year in May the airport celebrate the amazing aviation community and history here in Everett, Washington and this year was no exception.

    I was able to catch all the great Warbird action on video for folks to enjoy all the fun.

    This first video is of a few of the local trainers that frequent Paine Firld, including. t-6 Texan from HFF, Harvard II from the Canadian Museum of Flight, and a privately owned SNJ... Plus an AD-1N Skyraider which will show up later...

    HFF then showed off their amazing B-25D Mitchell, "Grumpy," P-51B "Impatient Virgin?" and spitfire Mk. IXe.

    Then the local chapter of EAA Warbirds, Cascade Warbirds, made some fun passes in their Navions, CJ-6's, and other aircraft...

    Not necessarily WWII, but still a Warbird, Heritage Flight Museum, located up in Bellingham but still a regular at Paine Field, sent down their AD-1N Skyraider "The Proud American" to put on a great show.

    Not to be out done, HFF returns with their Grumman F7F Tigercat, "Bad Kitty" and F8F Bearcat.

    Once my computer is back up and running, I will post a few photos as well as the final video, featuring HFF's newest addition, a PanAm DC-3.

    I hope you folks enjoy the videos... With flying season just starting I hope to post many more videos to enjoy. Up next is Tankfest on Monday to watch FHC drive and fire their Hetzer, T-34, and newly added Sherman, and two of their Flak 88's
