      Hi All,
      Good video, I bet a certain bearded,Rum making chap in Florida will be after one of those Kingfishers if not already owning one tucked away in his stash ?............

        They're his Kingfishers. While released fairly recently, video was from somewhat further ago (as you can tell from the state of the P-39).

        My photos of the P-39, taken on hangar visit Dec 2017, the NZ Warbirds Open day in November that the P-39 video was done before/at, and hangar vist Dec 2018. Note that while it was initially referred to as a P-39Q, it has been registered as P-39F 15-554 USAAF recovered from Queensland - components from a number of machine are involved.

        And more photos from Pioneer hangar visits (including P-40s and Kingfisher)

          Thanks for the link! I'd missed that.

          Jerry's surname is Yagen.

              For anyone interested Paul McSweeny, the boss at Pioneer Aero, has uploaded a new P-39 engine run video:

                  Posted on Facebook by Classic Aircraft Photography today.



                  Took this photo this afternoon during the very first test flight of Jerry Yagens P-39F Airacobra.
                  Congratulations to Jerry and the team at Pioneer Aero Restorations who bought this very rare machine back to life.
                  Pilot was Frank Parker and the photo taken from Harvard 90 flown by Dean Beverley.
