You know something...Nothing compares to a live view of an airplane especially a WW2 airplane... The way the lines meet, everything meets in a perfect shape... It's beautiful...A picture can't show all this... To feel it, to smell it, to hear it's engine growl...wooow... You guis who actually had the opportunity to fly in such a masterpiece should consider yourselfs lucky... The only plane I flew in was a Zlin-526...(nice...but it doesn't compare...)
Yeah, Hurri despite an impression that it was a biplane that lost its top wing somewhere is truly a beauty. Not only was it beautiful but also very tough.
One disadvantage that could make pilot's life, hmmm complicated was that glicol tank in front of the windshield...
But nevertheless it is one of my favourite planes. (besides Spit MkIX, Fw190A6 and P38J).
Well, which WWII planes have I seen?
Hmm, a lot of them, to mention only few of them:
Spitfire IX (Mark Hanna (R.I.P) at controls), Spit Mk.XVI (static, ex Canadian), recce Spit (I can't recall the exact Mk, driven by Aussie pilot, Nigel Lamb). Corsair (New Zealand markings), Bf109G (static), Spanish built 109 (Jumoschmitt - in dogfight with MkIX, awesome), P11c static with working engine, I 16, Yak3 and 9, La5, Il2, Pe2, Tu2 (all of these Soviet planes static).
