    Went out with Lloyd, Pegleg Harry and Myself... Lloyd and I have been working on 2 aircraft of his... A scratch built Force One, the green one, and a P-51D Mustang named Short Fuse Sallee...

    This plane was unreal... Unreal flight control surfaces...... Fast as hell.....

    The green one is just plain sick.... It looks like a stealth and sounds like a freak of nature....

    I had my P-39Q Aircobra up on several flights, till I ran outta nitro and NO WIND, and landed in a tree... Damage was slight and repairable...

    The Red Baron was kickin ass like always...

    I was pushing too many RPM's in my 14 minutes of airtime... I wouldnt have crashed if there was a nice headwind, but the wind was nil.... I made a turn around to land her, but i lost aileron control and stalled out into the tree.......

    Not the first time ive crashed........

    The Mustang really does look cool. Your P-39 too, except for the ding to the wing. ;)
