Got the Drifter so I will be there. I was always going to be there but it was a question of fly or ride. I get to fly 009_happy.gif.56d1e13d4ca35a447ad034f1ecf7aa58.gif009_happy.gif.6c2bb44de193c22334d0d18bb48c91b2.gif

Great weather in fact it just couldn't have been better. Unofficial count of 150 aircraft. I think from memory that's more than last years Natfly. Thanks all those who flew in for making it such a fantastic day. Greg.

I had to fly out west briefly and returned about 11am great turn out... I had other pressing matters so had to leave about 1230. Didn't even get a chance to see all the cars.

 

Thanks to all the volunteers and people who make this happen.

Yes we would have passed there somewhere around the half way mark. I was also checking out your trailer as well as the "Death Machine" 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

Gary:

I love the first shot in your sequence with the Trojan and the girl in costume. I can just hear the opening strains of the big band playing "In the mood".

Yeah, Scott, I filched that photo-op from the pros, busy working with the period-costumed model.

 

I like how that 'iconic' photo plays against the one that follows it; pure symbol - feminine allure, WWII style - gets reconfigured as everyday person (limbs rearranged practically for shot-checking). 'Image' deconstructed by snapshot.

 

(The Trojan, though, remains itself throughout, which is what really interests us plane-tragics, right? ;-)

I just have to say, as an observer, that this plane gets my vote as best on field? (But then the Trojans.... hmm 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif) What about those others who were there; what's your pick?

My partner likes the RV and the DH82's, I liked the Waco.

 

I have one of me in front of the one you posted.
