  1. A gorgeous North American T-6A Texan (N9790Z) Lifting Off During The Wings Over Dallas Event
  2. A 1947 fully restored Beech D18S (C-45) photo pass
  3. Wow! That ride would cost $1000 plus these days.
  4. Thanks Vivion. No, Chino is on my someday bucket list. I usually focus on the immediate area of north and central Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. Actually the Corsair is a beautiful aircraft in the air. Powerful yet graceful as she twists and turns. But when she points her nose toward the ground she becomes angry and menacing and you realize how and why she got the nickname whistling death.
  5. 1943 Goodyear FG-1D Corsair (N9964Z) caught on takeoff
  6. A gorgeous North American T-6G Texan (N6253C) providing ride flights at the event
  7. Noticed it very early this morning, basically unresponsive. Much better now.
  8. Same here Mike, guess I was around 7 or 8. Once together it was almost indestructible as I recall, perfect for a young boy to play with outside.
  9. Couple shots of a SNJ-5 in training squadron colors (Navy version of the T-6 Texan)
  10. Love this old Diamond T Motor Company pickup on display at the Mid America Flight Museum (Mt. Pleasant, Texas). A 40's vintage I'm assuming.
  11. Since Bell Helicopter is one of the primary sponsors of the Fort Worth Alliance show they rolled out their latest ride still undergoing flight tests. The Bell Helicopter Textron Inc. V-280 Rotorcraft (Developmental) (N280BH) named Valor with a L-39 chase plane.
  12. Gorgeous light and color
  13. Each year the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) hosts and event at their Dallas Texas headquarters called Wings Over Dallas. This year the event was held last weekend and it was their biggest show to date at that location. I'll post photos as I develop them, but to start here are a couple of FiFi, one of only two WWII era Boeing B-29 Super Fortresses in the world that still fly. Beautiful, powerful, loud and graceful are some of the words I use to describe FiFi. Nothing like watching this huge aircraft take to the air with her four radial engines at full song.
