Very good book!

If you like the Corsair there was a nice but short section on acquiring one and flying it in Frank Tallman's long out of print book "Flying the Old Planes".

Holy Smoke! What a beautiful work of art that F4U is 😎😎😎😎


Reminds of the time, after 20 years living here, that there was an actual Focke-Wulf 190 on display at the little Texas Air Museum right here at Stinson Field on the south side of San Antonio. Friggin’ awesome plane even if it wasn’t restored to full flying condition 😎

Sadly, it has since been relocated IIRC to Midland TX

I went and saw it Thursday. I liked “The Bridges at Toko Ri” better.

I haven’t been in a while. Do they still have the SR-71 there?
