    Can't mistake that silouete of the Spitfire in the air. Some ME-109 also. There are some B-17's in there somewhere.

    I loved it and I immediately thought of you. You "old" silk scarf guy:shake: How come I never heard of this show? If you search they have a lot more planes at this show! Worth a trip to Ireland with a stopover at the UK for at least one day and maybe a Manchester United match.

    At 20/200 I could only watch you guys on the scope but at least I could work to direct your orbit for tanker and where you were going and get you refueled before strike and BINGO hookup on the way home if we all looked real close! It was our pleasure to work with you guys.

    Did I actually see an Immelman in there? They are wrong. CAF has a flying B-17. All silver and flys here regularly

    Would that be "Sentimental Journey" based a mile from my house at Falcon Field?

    Sorry it might have been a B-29 flying near by out of our local. I still think it was a 17 flying over the soccer field.

    It was a B-17. Hope the nose painting wasn't a "sentimental journey"
