I believe there is suppose to be about 400 + warbirds here this year. The most ever at EAA as far as I know.
Normally they are all grouped together. All P-51s in one group, At-6s in another, bombers etc. But because of the new "Monsoon season" we've had up here, the planes are scattered all over on high ground and taxi ways.

A few days ago we had a flight of about 30 C-47/ DC-3s fly over. It looked like the D-day invasion.

I'll try to post more pics this weekend as I only took a small percentage of whats out here.

The sights, smells and sounds of all the warbirds flying around here is just incredible.

Here's a few more. Had light rain this afternoon. I know some of the pics aren't that great. I need to get a better camera.

Hey, that P-40 K with the Aleutian tiger on it is up for sale. Only $1,995,000.00

I'm leaving in an hour now that I have seen those photos... I will be there in the morning...
I still have room in the van if anyone need a ride along the way.

I have to say I was VERY disappointed in the airshow today. The heritage flight witht the F4, F-15 and P-38s was great. They didn't fly any of the T-28's, non of the B-17's or B-25's flew, the only Military flight solo was the C-17(which is awesome). They had a slew of current military jets parked on the east side of the runway and none flew.

We saw 2 P-51's, a corsair, and a seafury. That was it for Piston fighters all day.

I agree with you. All week long most of the warbirds have been flying around putting on a good show. But by the time I finish work (EAA Volunteer) and get down to the flight line, I end up missing most of it. Took off early today thinking the weekend show would be the one to see. I was also very dissapointed. No heavys today.

Alot of the warbirds have already left.

Oh well, still had fun. Air venture technically is not just a warbird event.

Almost forgot. We do fly R/C at EAA. Although limited to small electrics, were still flying warbirds.

The number of Warbirds does not compare to what we had back in the early 90's. Those where amazing years. Easily double what you see today. However I would say it was up from the past 3 years. I shot the ones I am particularly interested in and modeling. Tuskegee Airmen and some YAK-3's. Checkout these cockpit shots on the P-51C. It was worth my trip this year. There was an actual Zero there this year. It flew and they did a mock dog fight with a P-38. Very nice. Leo

the last time I was there was 1987. There were alot more warbirds then. They also flew them. Saturday was a bunch of hangar queens. I took 750 pictures, I will go through them when I get home. I went to the museum today, that is really well done.

WarBird Man and Spy, those are great! Are you doing requests? Always loved walking down the T-28's. And any Tiger Cats there this year? (edit... just saw it!) You are lucky to be there. Enjoy for the rest of us!
