The reason I didn’t get much work done on the plane last weekend is because it was the annual Vintage Aircraft Weekend at Paine Field. It was a little disappointing that the Me-262 wasn’t there this year, but it was otherwise pretty cool. Above is the B-25 (Grumpy) and a P-51D in formation flight. Always cool. Below is Bad Kitty (F-7F) starting the big radials.
The also had a Bearcat up for a while. Fantastically cool airplane. As much engine as they could possibly stuff into the smallest airframe that could hold it. They must be a blast to fly.
Here’s a spectacular Spitfire Mk IX (my favorite model). Below that, a peek at the panel.
This is fun. An airworthy DC-2. I’m not sure how many of these are left, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the last airworthy example in the world.
And last, but most certainly not least, John Marzulli was there with his super-cool CH-701.
