    You are welcome. It isn't every day these things share the same sky! Since Wespac is building one, there will soon be seven of them flyable! At least four of those in the formation are using Allisons from Joe Yancey. Hopefully I'll find more interesting stuff.

    I'll look for some that isn't just flybys ... though I DO like to see the Navy guys unfold and fold their wings ...

    I know I said I'd look for other than flybys, but this clip is Steve Hintron flying Paul Allen's originalk Fw 190A-5 with BMW 801 radial. Seems like a good excpetion to the no flyby rule ...

    Sorry too.

    The Bf 109E is also in Paul Allen's collection and is an original DB-powered plane that looks absolutey factory fresh. Obviously they didn't have an FAA waiver for the airspace and were thus not authorized to perform any aerobatic maneuvers but, if they ever put on an airshow at Paine Field, then you'd probably see some Bf 109 or Fw 190 aerobatics ... if Mr. Allen is willing. I know Steve Hinton is qualified!
