  1. Saw the first episode of th new series of Warbird workshop last night, it was on a 2 seater hurricane. I'm sure the hurricane officionados here will correct me if I'm wrong, but I wasn't aware that there was a 2 seater hurricane during WW2. Anyway, the programme was a brisk run through of the restortion work, with soe historical perspective, and finished with the daughter of a BoB hurricane pilot taking a flight in the 2 seater. next week's programme is about a restoration of the Navy's first seaplane.
  2. I went to the Tyabb airshow this Sunday - as usual, a nice collection of beautiful warbirds. I'll post photos here from time to time as I get round to processing them, for now here is the RAAF Museum's recently restored CA-18 Mustang being put through its paces. Thanks for looking Julian

  6. Hi mates, This year's show at Geneseo NY had much better weather than last year (when it rained pretty much all weekend). The show is put on by the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group from Geneseo, NY, which is just south of Rochester, NY. The show is dedicated to warbirds, and almost always with propellers! The landing strip is natural turf, and the setting is bucolic, nestled in the rolling farmlands of the upper Finger Lakes region. This year's show featured the return of the Lancaster, Spitfire, and Hurricane from the Canadians, along with many US warbirds. This was the first time I had seen a flying Avenger - at least that I can remember! I missed the show on Saturday, as I was returning from a camping trip. Then, I also missed Sunday morning's performances because of a localised disruption in the space-time continuum (i.e. I was late). Because of this, I missed the British warbird's flight demos, but I got a lot of photos on the ground and a friend donated some in-air shots from the morning. I did stay long enough to watch the Lancaster, Spit, and Hurri depart and got some photos of that. It started out very sunny, humid, and hot - it was 96 degrees F in the afternoon. Accordingly, thunderstorms were rolling in at the end of the show but luckily it didn't start raining until I was on my way home. Anyway, on with the pictures, who explain themselves better than I can! The Sukhoi was too fast for my fingers! I have a lot more photos, including some more that demonstrate my inability to get any good in-air shots during flight demos. The Lancaster! I believe this is the second flying example left in the world, and belongs to the Canadian Warplane Heritage from Hamilton, Ontario. The next shots are from my friend's cell phone, and magnified in defiance of all known laws of physics. This was during the flight display that I missed. The world's last flying example of the Curtiss C-46 Commando (Edit: NOT! Silly airshow announcer, filling me full of such drivel): The C-47 belongs to the 1941 Historical Aircraft Group, and is one that actually participated in the D-Day landings, delivering paratroopers. This year's show also had a couple of B-25 Mitchell bombers. And the more interesting markings of the two: We have the Devil on the starboard side: And an Angel on the port side. Georgie's Gal must have quite a split personality! Another shot of the Avenger: The Douglas A-26 restoration is coming along nicely. I hope they paint this baby black! As always, a large collection of T-6 Harvards/Texans: And a couple of Stearmans (note the Jaguar in the background!): The glider demo was so mesmerizing I forgot to turn the camera on while it was in the sky! Father and son Pitts Specials: These shots were from the end of the day when the planes were heading home - the thunderstorms are rolling in, the humidity was unbearable, and the telephoto shots were very foggy-looking. Add to that the fact that I'm a lousy photographer, and there you have it! Still beautifully clear to the east though: Heading towards the west: I didn't catch the ID on this one, Beech C-45 maybe? The Lancaster taxiing into position. Making the turn for take-off: Back to Hamilton, Ontario: One last fly-by before the turn for home: And a nice shot of the Lancaster against the sky to end the day! Other than the crazy heat, and my inability to get there in time to see the earlier flight displays, it was a fun day. Looking forward to next year's "Greatest Show on Turf!" Cheers, Bill
