~ Come Fly with Me ~

Ron gets a no-prize that makes a very sweet sound for bringing us news of an airshow scheduled to feature 100, yes, 100, P-51 Mustangs. I didn't know there actually were 100 flyable P-51s in the world. If they manage to put them all in the air at once it'll be... spectacular.
Too bad it doesn't look like it'll be an annual event. That's definitely something I'd think about penciling into the calendar next year.
eMail this entry!
That's pretty awesome!
Now if they would just throw in a Me-262 in there with the 51s, I'd make the trip!
They'll probably have one there, or at least something from the losing side (had to get that little dig in). It's a pretty big airshow and they tend to get all sorts of fun stuff.
Hopefully there wont be one less by the end of the show the way things are going at air shows these days.
We are supposed to be in Perth for the final Red Bull Air Race of 07 next month.

Slaps the airlines.
She recently stepped down and will be missed.
Agreed - these things are rare enough that any damage (especially a crash) is bad. Not to mention that the pilots probably aren't all that big on crashing as well.
And that's funny about Blakely. Honestly, I know certain airports that are just horrible for delays. Philadelphia (quite possibly the worst airport ever designed, staffed by the rudest people ever born, and run by the least intelligent staff possible. Hell, to at least have a chance of flying out on time, I'd generally have to leave on the first plane out - and even that was dicey.) was always the worst for me. Laguardia isn't all that hot, either. Boston's okay, but generally delayed by at least 30 minutes in the evenings.
