Ah, the Super Stearman, I hadn't realized how similar they look, especially in that perspective and marking;



Thanks Ken.

I'm always amazed at the variety of planes that assemble at this event.

Not to mention a real treat this year.......

Two real life TOP GUN's showed up! No kidding....... they had the hats and everything!

We received some real insight into the preparation it takes to put on a Top Gun style performance as the second photo shows the mental "Pre-flight" work that goes into a quality flight.
