This is a friend's plane that I have been lucky to fly pretty much when I want. I can tell you it is so cool to fly a plane that has trained many WWII pilots when it was new. Here are a few shots from yesterday.

Love it! Any and every WWII warplane is a work of art.

You are not kidding. The woodwork in this plane is beautiful. When Mr Fairchild got the contract to produce these planes in big numbers he didn't have a crew to do it. He walked down the street in New York and threw a bunch of money at the workers at a piano company to build the wings and center section. The work of those fine craftsmen shows.

Who better to work with wood at that time than piano makers I'm sure that thing is sharp!
That is a sweet looking plane must be a blast to fly, break out the 40s flying jacket and and helmet and go zip around 8)

I haven't been to Oshkosh, it's on my bucket list. A plane just went down there today, the companies owners son is believed to be flying it. It crashed on top of a bunc of brand new Oshkosh trucks.

A bit more fun with the PT19 today. Who knew all it took to have a great time flying low and slow is to open the cockpit. I might be in love with this old girl.
