    I just got back from the Pikes Peak Regional Air Show and despite the Thunderbirds getting rained out, before the rain came I had a stunning experience seeing a bunch of WW2 warbirds in flight and boy are they gorgeous and oh how great the sound. We saw a PBY, B-25, F3F, F4F Wildcat painted as a Martlet, P-38, P-40, 2 x TBF Avengers, 2 x P-47 Thunderbolts, SBD Dauntless, A-1 Skyraider and 2 x T28s and my personal highlight, a Spitfire that actually flew on D Day. They also had 2 x P-51 and 2 x F7F Tigercats but they also got rained out.

    If anyone is close, they will try and fly tomorrow as well.


    The tree of Life is self pruning.


    Always great to see and hear those WW 2 planes.


    That sounds a bit good!

    I’m lucky enough to see a Spitfire quite often as my work takes me to Biggin Hill on a regular basis. There is a Spitfire that has been adapted into a two seater and takes paying passengers. It is pricey, mind. About two and a half grand for a twenty minute flight! The sound of the engine is just magnificent!
