Some days its just not worth the effort to chew my way out of my straight Jacket!
THAT WAS FANTASTIC!!!
1985 Venture Royale
I started out with NOTHING, I still have most of it left!
Love it. Imagine seeing those birds by the hunderds at once back in WW2?
My favorite, that would be an F-4 Corsair, I think the Japs called it "screaming eagle" because of the sound the oil cooler made in a full dive, and on the ground, that radial engine sounds strong along with (I think it is) the largest propeller of any fighter in that day, I think it was 13 1/2 ft. in diameter.

Love that stuff, could not get enough volume from my speakers tho,
I did get the chance to go to the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh Wi Loved see the old warbirds there!!!
Modern planes may have superior performance, but they'll never sound as good as these old war birds. Sends a shiver down my spine every time I hear one!
Wow !!!!!!!!!!! That was something else....Been on a twin engine from Lexington to Louisville. Then a giant jet from Louisville, KY to Roy Rogers airport in Oklahoma. At first scared to death, but once up and relaxed, I loved it.
The twin engine dropped a few times in air turbulence that we where warned about and scared me to death. Then the giant four across seat jet was really nice. It set me back in the seat when we took off. I loved being up and in the clouds. Flew back and forth to Oklahoma four different times for on the job training. An experience I have never forgotten and never will.
We have a member who's father was a F-4 Corsair pilot in the S.Pacific during WWII. I think you would be surprised at who the member is........I will let a few of you guess, before I reveal. In his later years after serving he became and Episcopal Priest. I would have loved to have met him but he passed on last year. Our member talked proudly of his dads accomplishments the last time we saw each other.
