I've never seen German troops attacking a Corsair base before. :D


This is a re enactment of the German Bombing of Pearl Harbor! As seen on the History of Lumberjacks Channel!

The Corsair gathering was worth coming. Saturday’s flying was OK, it did not wow me for some reason. I agree with Xray's comments. Maybe an hour intermission, two hours seemed a bit long. The ride aircraft were busy. A tip of the hat to announcer Rob Reider for saying that the Corsair was the first “single engined” aircraft to break 400 mph. That “single engined” gets left out frequently.

It was the first time seeing a P-2 up-close, which was nice.

They got picky on coolers this year. I brought the same small (two lunch bag size) soft side cooler that I’ve brought for the past several years with no problems previously, just no ice inside of it. I was told it was an FAA security issue was the reason for the clamp down. Cough, “greed”. I do not like to be ripped off being forced to buy over priced mediocre food. It is expensive enough going.

I like the Blues and T-Birds. But I would really like to see the Snowbirds again. It was been over 10 years since I last saw them.
