A Super Cub type (Piper or Legend, Carbon, perhaps a Wag, but not a Husky because it had rounded wingtips) on amphibian floats.I
You don't often see amphibs on smaller aircraft.

Last (?) Saturday, I was flying up to KCZL to get some fuel and check in with some friends. A natural metal Caribou was doing stop and goes. That's a nice sized airplane to go so slow in the pattern. I asked the pilot over UNICOM where he was based and he indicated McCollum Field in Kennesaw, GA.

I need to track those guys down and beg for a ride...

On Friday, 8/17, I was at the Cleveland Browns pre-season game and sometime between 8:00 - 8:30, it looked like a Super Hornet was on approach to Cleveland Hopkins. It was flying like commercial traffic does into Hopkins. The game had started at 7:30, so it was not a flyover.

B-17 Madras Maiden pulled up on our ramp here at EPPS Aviation, KPDK, a little while ago. I am told that they will be here all week & Labor Day weekend.

Tuesday morning about 9:00, sitting on the verandah at a hotel in Key West having breakfast, Wifey and I saw several F-5's (aggressors?) on approach to NAS Key West. Neato!

Tom Cruises flew in and landed at NAWS China Lake. His Mustang whistles a bit louder than others I've heard...They're filming Top Gun II here (aerial shots).

The most distinct/loudest whistle on Mustangs comes about when the two inboard gun tubes/extensions are present and of authentic dimensions, which produce the loudest/most distinct whistle/howl, and to a somewhat lesser degree the four outboard protruding gun barrels. All of that is so on Cruise's Mustang. (Of course a couple of the factors contributing to some producing a louder whistle than others could be the angle at which the guns are mounted and the balance/trim of the aircraft).

He was doing a carrier break type approach. It was whistling like crazy straight and level and in a banking turn. His engine sounded really good too. More of a deep throated growl...

Does anyone know what the new name is on Cruise's Mustang? (I am assuming that he changed it from his ex-wife's name :lol: )

It wasn't too long after they split, several years ago, that the name artwork was removed or painted over, and it has remained without a name or nose art ever since. Here are a couple photos taken just recently (it's a great looking paint scheme as is - one of just three Mustangs flying today originally built as K-models, the others being "Fragile but Agile" and "Frenesi"):

This afternoon I saw a A-26 East bound at 4500' around 3pm. I'm just South of the Midway Airport (KJWY). I saw Tom Cruise's Mustang down at Stallion 51 in August, as John mentioned it looks really sharp.
