I know there are a couple of members here who like to watch the birds with metal wings. I am an aircraft mechanic, and aviation is one of my passions! Thought I would share a shot of one of my favorite "birds" the P-51 Mustang!

I'll toss a few Mustangs into your thread. The P-51 is #2 for me just behind the Spitfire.

 

 

 

 

I have hundreds more Mustangs and a few thousand warbird shots kicking around. I can post more in this thread if anyone would like to see them.

 

Cheers,

 

Jeff

Jetmedix....I get the feeling that you have created a thread that may go on for a very long time and I am not complaining.

Here are a few more for today.

C-130 Hercules

Hawker Hurricane

P-51 Mustang

Spitfire Mk. IX

 

Have a great day everyone.

 

Cheers,

 

Jeff

I hope so Jeff, keep them coming! I am really enjoying all the old warbirds...

Here is a shot from my office door, the civilian side of aviation.

The CF-18 with the fancy paint was the 2009 Canadian Armed Forces Demo bird. Quite sharp.

 

Spitfire

 

P-51D Mustang

 

F-4U Corsair

 

North American Harvard

 

All of today's aircraft are owned by Vintage Wings of Canada based in Gatineau Quebec which is located across the river from Ottawa, Canada's national capital. Beautifully maintained and always looking great, VWofC is a fast growing collection that also includes but is not limited to, two Hawker Hurricanes, a Fairey Swordfish, P-40, F-86 Sabre and a second Spitfire. All the aircraft are flyable or are well on their way to being so.

 

Cheers,

 

Jeff
