my friend was an air force pilot for many years.he went to this airshow and is leaving next week to go to the Reno Air races in Nevada to race a P 51 Mustang!
on the one man helicopter
That video is awesome
This ones a winner.. i was all pumped at the F-4 (think phantams are my favorite) and Mig 21 then BAM.. All of those old C-47/DC-3's came along.. The final shot of the "sandy" (A-1 skyraider) was worth the time.. great video
DC-3, when I was a teen, I flew from Pueblo Co. to Alamosa, Co.
I didn't relize what history I was experancing at the time.
When I read about WW Two, they talk about the DC, don't know if it's the 1, 2, or 3.
After the war these planes hauled coal, potatoes, and other supplies.
O ya, the one I flew in had seats!! ; )
brother was graduating OCS at Benning.. and i flew down with Mom to watch him graduate.. they had the DC-2 first but not for long before it was the 3..
The military designation is the C-47 or goony bird.. and we had them in Vietnam all the way thru. Not just the minigun "puff the dragon" ones that were used before the C-130 but for all types of transport.. i spent most of my time in the Phllipines, and telling you there was not a day that went by that a 47 didn't come in for something.. all of them from diffrent services, and countrys..
I'am going to the Ft. Worth AirShow Oct.30th! There will be a F-22 Raptor flying a Demo......Should be Awesome!!
