Well now after reading these posts I'm homesick. I grew up in Griffith, and still have family living all over Northern Indiana. Looking forward to you guys posting some pictures of your event after it's over.

Hey Jim,

I just boxed your tank up and will get it in the mail late today or first thing tomorrow. Depending on when I can get down to the Post Office. Shipping cost ?? Pfffffft..... Just glad to do it. We have some members that are real bloodhounds when it comes to finding downed models or just their bits. What ever the case may be. I think your tank was found when retrieving the Silver Sig P-51B you saw flying at our event. I think he was jumped and went down defending the skies over PMAC !!!

As for Ex Royal Navy Commander Caractacus Potts, It's hard to break old habits. He made a boatload of money licensing his candy with holes in it to Lord Scrumptious yet he still likes to rummage around for odd parts believing he's still an inventor.

Have fun in Indiana.

Joe

Hi Jiim,
I got my H-9 Corsair done, I will be bringing it. My buddy that is coming with me is bringing his Top Flight Corsair also. Hopefully you can find some extra room to bring yours, but not at the expense of leaving the P-47 or the tank at home. What would be cool is some pyrotechnics with explosions and fire. [:@]

I know Jim,I have a jeep wrangler and it isn't much better than your truck. That's why I don't go all over the country towing my trailer.
Good weather tomorrow,a little hot but a 10 to 15 mph wind from the southwest so that is practically right down the field.See you tomorrow. Tom

These are the last of the pics I took. I did NOT get ALL the aircraft there, and unfortunately missed one of the really great warbirds there: I believe it was a giant scale Grumman biplane, in pre war (WW II) U.S. Navy colors. I also did not get pics of my own warbirds, all 3 of which flew: Top Flite '60 size' Mustang, Top Flite '60 size' P-47, and VQ Me-108.

WOW, Great Pics Tom. That 5th one is the one to examine closely: you can see the baking soda cloud from my Vortac bomb just inches from the tank! Thanks, Tom.

I had a great time, well worth the trip. All of my birds made it home in one piece also,that's good. to bad all the pieces didn't make it there. I realized while assembling my birds I had left the wing to my p-47 at home. []
