    This was a great little show at Paine Field in Everett, WA. They had a really nice mix of warbirds and well...vintage aircraft! An airworthy DC-2, an airworthy Boeing Model 247, an airworthy Boeing Model 40, incredible Wacos and an equally amazing Staggerwing, Stinsons, Stearmans, etc. But seeing as this is a WW2 aircraft site, here you go...

    Thanks for all the nice comments, guys! Here are a few more pics.

    Mike — The Me 262 is indeed a flying replica (I believe it made its first flight in July). Unfortunately it didn't fly at the show. It's stored in a hangar on the other side of the runway, so I'm sure they just towed it across.

    Crimea — No Fw 190 at this show. However, she lives just on the other side of the runway, so she was lurking nearby!

    George — There are couple flying days coming up at Paine Field. Next Saturday the FHC is going to fly their Po-2 and I-16 Rata. Their MiG-29 will also be there, but much to my chagrin it will only be on static display. On September 24 there will be two B-25s flying together, FHC's J (just arrived this summer following a mind-blowing restoration) and HFF's D "Grumpy."

    Great stuff. That Lindbergh Line airplane is one of the few DC-2s. It passed through Camarillo a year or so ago. Gorgeous and rare. :thumbleft:
