    Once again the Russell groip will be holding its airshow in Niagara Falls Ontario on the June 13-15th 2008 if your not familiar with this group it was featured in Flypast Magazine last year we feature Bf/Me 109e4 Spit IX and a Hurricane with our venerable Harvard .It is a small airshow no heavy metal just props anticipated this year are the B17, and anything else we can manage to attract . Hoping for flybys of the Lanc and Cat .here is a pic I took of our 4 birds with the Red nosed 51 visitor

    I saw White 14 back in 2005 and 2006 at Thunder over Michigan. It was exciting watching it and the P-47s playing tag over the reinactors. Beautiful field, I would love to fly up there during the summer. If I come up there, I will buy you a cold one pbfoot.

    Very nice Pb. I wasn't aware of any Bf109s with actual war experience outside of museums.

    A little update on the show
    Memphis Belle B17 from Geneseo
    P51 Glamorous Doll from Warbirds over Long Island and their P40 are among the aircraft attending .
    I believe the Canadian Harvard Assoc
    Great War Flying Museum
    The CWH Lanc should be doing a formation flypast with 2 Spits and 2 Hurricanes
