Photos from Duxford


One of the aviation forums that I frequent is Plane Talk. Vintage airplane discussions and photos abound on this forum! A few weeks ago the famous airfield at Duxford, England held an end of the season flying display. Go to this forum post to see some amazing photos from that display. A special thanks to Gary Brown for allowing me to post the above photo. Great shooting Gary! Also, scroll down that entire post to see the great shots of the very rare Hawker Nimrod!

Waco Restoration


Took off work alittle early last Wednessday to take my friend Andy (of the National Waco Club) up to see a local restoration shop that is working on two Waco restorations. In the shop in various stages of restoration were a Cub, Champ, Stearman, Bucker (the former Slovak/Gann aircraft - N121U), Hiperbipe, RV8, Waco RBA and a standard cabin Waco. Goodfriend Aircraft is making great progress on the restoration of the rare Waco RBA pictured above. This is a unique open cockpit, side-by-side seating, Warner powered, Waco biplane. This will surely be an award winning aircraft!

Reflection


Took this shot yesterday morning while flying over Lake Ray Roberts North of the DFW area. Reflection off the lake made me want to grab the camera and take a shot!

Boeing 40


Great progress is being made by the Pemberton's on their Boeing 40 restoration. Up on the wheels and painted. Sounds like wing fit check is next with wing covering to follow. Visit their web site here.

Flying DH4


This came across my desk this week. A flying DH-4 with a Liberty V-12! Check out the restoration pictures here.
