The station wagon should be pretty safe from the Stearman and SNJ, however, if they bring out a Corsair, or an f6f or f8f, maybe it better hide somewhere....

In the uncropped image, the Corsair lives in the hanger just to the right of the SNJ. The station wagon's been there before 'n one time the thing buzzed 'er.

Fortunately, the B-25 sits in the other end and they don't take it out much. The sight of that would probably turn 'er white.

Watched the Stearman in the air Saturday Arcey. We were moving my daughter's horse and the farm we left was right in the flight path.

The D/FW wing of the CAF has a Stearman that they sell rides on as well as a R4D. They just had a local air show over the weekend in Lancaster, Texas

About the same price at the Flying Circus(yankeee occupied Virgina) in their Stearman.  Many hours of free entertainment of them flying over there.

That is a reasonable price. The rates for the CAF aircraft is by the hour, and usually over $400.

I think the Stearman at Lake of the Ozarks Airshow costs about $150, too. I don't rewmember what they charged for a ride in the P-51 though. Doesn't matter , I guess, it's out of my price range. They usually have a B-25, but the rides on that are paid for by local businesses, and donated to local WWII Vets, or sometimes Korea. Last year we had a C-47 Gunship and a TBF, since the Missouri wing's B-25 was in down for an engine replacement.

Our local airshow is coming up in a couple of weeks, broke again, so probably no rides in anything.

I'll have to go sometime to one of the bigger shows, we can't get any 4 engine planes here, not enough runway, although they're planning an extension.

The runways at Addison airport are long enough for the B-24 and the B-29 to land and take offs.

My Dad's WW2 outfit's reunion is this weekend over in Dallas. Most of the reunion will take place a Cavanaugh's Museum of Flight in Addison, Texas. I am really looking forward to it. I am hoping to meet anyone that may have known him or served with him.

We leave at 0930 for our day at Cavanaugh's Museum. They are forecasting rain today. They will be offering rides for us.  We have 9 WW2 veterans in attendance at the Reunion.

We had a blast at the Cavanaugh Museum. The  Veterans really enjoyed seeing the B-25, it was one of the 310th Bomb group's Aircraft. The weather has cooled off today, with a high of 65.

The P-51, the Bombers, and "FIFI" all go for over $400.an Hour.


I'm sure the price is much over the $400 per hour mark, at least that's what I would expect after seeing the sign at the Kissimmee airport's P-51 parking space.  It was $1500 - for 20 minutes!

Hell, I'd HAPPILY pay $400 for an hour's flight in a Mustang ... or Fifi !  What a bargain!   

But that's me.  And I probably couldn't shoehorn my fat-assed self in a P-51 anyway.
