Wordless Wednesday

Warbird

One of our local residents owns this WWII warbird and it is now on display in a new hanger/restaurant at the airport. It is still operational and can be seen flying  over our house several times a year. The pilot also owns a P-51 Mustang. The Mustang and this British Spitfire are considered by many to be among the most beautiful war planes ever designed. I must admit, there aren’t any bad angles to view this plane from.

  1. One of the later Spitfires with D Day markings on it, very nice. Was it over here for the 100 years of the RAF with all th eother spits that were flying around

    1. Thanks for the information. I suspect that the P-51 also has historically significant markings as well.

    1. I think you’re right, I believe this is his favorite airplane, although he owns another WWII warbird.

    It IS truly a beautiful plane.
    My all time favorite is the Corsair.
    I absolutely LOVED going to visit the Air & Space Museum in DC.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Such beautiful elegant lines. Hard to imagine it is a hardhearted weapon of war. I love looking at aircraft, new ones, old ones, I don’t care.
