    replied to F4U Kissimmee 1997
    That is an F4U-4 that Tom had at the time (a BuNo. was never established). After Tom moved his operation from Florida to Georgia the project went to Vought Heritage in Dallas, Texas and was completed to static display condition. The final result was a mixture of F4U-4 with parts from other variants,...

    I assume it is this one (which the wreckage of was photographed at Kissimmee in the late 80's, and which is known to have had the number "13" on the side of it): http://www.warbirdregistry.org/corsa...4u-122179.html

    This particular one is an interesting case in how it, and up...

    replied to ARCo Lysander flies!
    Archer's photo is of Lysander V9545, which Kermit Weeks still has (coded BA-C), which was G-BCWL when based/flying in the UK. It has not flown ever since being brought to the US. It spent a number of years on static display at the Florida Air Museum, but then four years ago Weeks had it removed from there and it has been disassembled...

    replied to Duxford Diary 2018
    Call me wrong if/when it happens, but I'm sure JG891 will be staying in England for some time to come. Dan Friedkin not only sent the aircraft to be repaired in the UK, but it was placed back on the UK register again as well. After Dan sent JG891 to England, he had his other Mk.V, EP122, sent to the...

  • Thank you for sharing these photos from your visit!

    The museum has a Youtube account with a number of videos of their airplanes flying, including this one, shot like a "Kermie cam", of a dogfight between their LeRhone rotary-powered Fokker Dr.1 and Lycoming-powered Sopwith Pup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqS0rUpBuh...

    replied to Ezell Aviation vid.
    Zac, I've always seen the Tempest project referred to as being Nelson's "pet project", or something that only primarily he was working on, and therefore it would be completely understandable if nothing has been done with the project since last summer. This photo from Ezell Aviation, taken earlier this year, ...

    replied to Ezell Aviation vid.
    Since that video was made, they have of course finished both of the Corsairs - the FG-1D for the Flying Heritage and Combat Armor Museum (Paul Allen) and the Brewster Corsair for Jim Slattery. Both are at the top of the most authentic flying Corsairs ever restored. The Bearcat was also completed, owned...
