Evan Higginsen's big Vought F4U Corsair.


Keith Hiatt's beautiful North American P-51 Mustang "Marie" built by Bud Pannier but never flown.


Evan Higginsen's Republic P-47 Thunderbolt.


Jerry Shelledy's North American P-51 Mustang "Old Boy".


Jerry's Lockheed P-38 Lightning. I believe Jerry said he flew a P-38 back in the day and related how if flew on one engine. Tom Winter and Jerry in the background.


Larry Bennington's pair of nearly identical P-51 Mustang's. The 4-bladed prop is just for show as both planes are flown with conventional props.


Larry's Curtiss P-40 Warhawk upside down in a cradle so the compressed air tank for the retracts can be filled and the gear lowered.


Larry's P-40 in Flying Tigers livery on the flight line between the 51's.


Coby Shaw's MK XIV Spitfire with it's 5-bladed prop in a very elaborate adjustable cradle. Coby brought his two sons, along with their planes, to enjoy the show, too.


The P-51 Reno Racer "Voodoo", a beautiful model by RocHobby. If you know who owns it, let me know.



Jeremy Solt's Fairchild Republic A-10 Warthog close-up.
