Go behind the scenes with the Redman family and see the craftsmanship and detail they put into restoring rare aircraft. The black V-77 turned out incredible! Thank you Redman family for preserving history and returning it to the skies! Hats off to Mike Fizer for the fine production.
Plenty of photos and great details are over at Warbirds News covering the Flying Legends Airshow 2014. Check out the P-26 Peashooter that came from Planes of Fame and the gorgeous polished P-40!

The warm up in Texas had begun but Warbird enthusiasts still turned out in good numbers to experience the sights and sounds of Wabirds Over Addison last May. The Cavanaugh Flight Museum gives everyone the opportunity to get up close to the aircraft and the pilots for their events. Throughout the day various aircraft were flown and even rides could be purchased in the Warbirds. Here are some photos highlighting the event along with Scott Slocum's video.

One weekend this last May the skies over the little town of Justin, Texas were treated to the sights and sounds of vintage airplanes. The numbers in attendance were not staggering but the uniqueness of the types is what made the day. Fairchild trainers, liaison Stinsons, North American trainers and the Boeing B-29 made appearances. One shiny beauty stopped people in their tracks... the Ryan STA. Which one had people asking "what is it?" most often? That would be the Travel Air 5000. One of two know to exist! Enjoy the photos below from the small airfield of Propwash in the hangar that houses Cowtown Aerocrafters.
