Warbirds Over Addison


We did not make it over to the event but thanks to Scott Slocum we can watch the highlights from Warbirds Over Addison 2013.  It is always great to see a good crowd enjoying the sights and sounds of vintage Warbirds!

2013 Chino Warbird Airshow Photos


One of the best airshows in the country to see unique Warbirds in the air is the annual airshow in Chino, California.  The Planes of Fame museum pulls out their amazing collection of flyable Warbirds and invites friends of the museum to join them each May.  A couple weeks ago they hosted six P-38 Lightnings to highlight this years show.  Five were flown during the event and one was on static display.  Check out the link below for an extensive photo gallery full of amazing images captured by Britt Dietz.  Don't miss the night time photos towards the end of the gallery.

(Be sure to check back in the next week or so for more coverage of the show on Britt Deitz's site.)

Another stand out aircraft at this years show was the early model P-40.  Look at this shine on this beautiful restoration!


Once you take the time to look through the airshow photos click back to the home page and treat yourself to ALL the Warbird photos!  Thanks to Britt Dietz for allowing us to post his photos and links.

Howard 500 - Journey Home video

Back in January we posted an awesome video of the Howard 500s owned by TPAero.  Another video has been produced and posted for all to enjoy.  This one featuring N500LN on its journey home from Europe.  The entire flight is not made at 20,000 feet.  They were down in the beautiful scenery making the most of the sights the trip had to offer.  Sit back and watch 9 minutes of spectacular video footage of this vintage powerhouse.

Next Generation


On a personal note my wife and I added a new addition to the family.  Brennen Dean Linn joined us April 22.  Brought him home from the hospital and dressed him up in his first aviation themed shirt.  His aviation education began by watching some vintage airplane videos in Dad's arms.  Can't hardly wait to take him touring of the local airports for some vintage airplane spotting!
