    The Spitfire was tailgating the Hurricane. There is another thread with a better picture. The P-38 is hot rabidalien. The owner wanted to own a P-38 because one saved his father's life on D-day when it straffed the beach. I will see if I can find to link to their website. The below link has info about several P-38s.

    Sorry for the delay guys. The office took away the internet from us. The Hurricane is based in Galveston Texas. The Lone Star Flight Museum has the restoration project for over tens years. I was starting to think that I would never see it completed. It was rolled out in the fall of 2007 and lasted about 7months before the crash. I beleive the Spitfire is from the Dallas area. Both planes are owned by the same person. The museum has not responded to my request for information. Both planes are in the hanger awaiting repairs. I want to drive down and see if I can get a close look but I keep thinking about the cost of the fuel. I will post more as I get the film processed. My lab keeps crashing and I am looking for a new one.
