    Some of you might be wondering how someone goes about shipping a Mitsubishi Zero. Ours just got back from Japan and I got a few pics. Here is the "center section."

    One of the ways it is bolted down is by a "shipping" engine mount:

    Here is a close-up of the tailwheel:

    Steve Hinton went to Texas a couple of days ago to practice with the Horsemen F-86 team and two of the three showed up back at the Planes of Fame shortly after lunch today. Here is our Sabre (Steve Hinton) and Ed Shipley's Sabre:

    Edit: Turns out this is Dan Friedken's Sabre flown in by Shippley. For you purists, this a Canadair Sabre Mk.6 or, in USA terms, basically an F-86E.

    Here is a closeup of their logo on the front gear door:

    All for now.

    Great pics but at 2.4 Mb each they`re pretty big files for us with crappy download speeds.

    I'm not really sure how to make them smaller ... the pics are from my camera.

    I use Photoshop but I assume you don't have it. Some of the guys here use Irfanview which is freeware.

    Set your camera for 72 pixel resolution for ones to post here.
    You may have it set for real high detail.

    Good interesting shots.

    Nice shots, Greg.

    To tell you the truth, I wondered if I should visit Tokorozawa to see your Zero or save money for my new camera.
    I have purchased a Nikon D700 this week at last though it is a secondhand one but was my dream for a long time.
    Sorry but I am happy now!
