Tom Cruise's P-51 Mustang by [email protected]
I saw his interview with Diane Sawyer last night. They showed video of him flying his sweet P-51. It's a really nice one. It has "Kiss Me Kate" painted on the nose.

Why were almost all of them scrapped? by [email protected]
Didn't ANYBODY after WW2 have the love of airplanes and the foresight to buy at least one military airplane, especially since they were so cheap? What were they thinking?! Did they not see the value of these planes for future generations? Why didn't some civilians simply buy a B-17 for $700 and...

Thank you for the excellent info on parts availabilty. On a similar topic, are there any maintenance trouble spots on the older Navions? I was told that the hydraulic system is leaky or troublesome. Is this true, how bad a problem is it and are there any other areas of concern?

In preparation for doing some simple OA welding on a rudder, I've been practicing on some 4130 scrap. Since there is filler where it's not structurally important, I"ve been filing the excess material. All except one and it's as hard as if I were trying to file stainless. Is this an indication that...

Oshkosh 2008 Photos by John[_9_]
Maybe I am spoiled. I keep expecting that in this modern age there will be plenty of photos of an event like AirVenture even while it is ongoing. The official EAA site is top heavy with photos of mechanical bulls, past prime rock n' roll acts, and photos of the people that make AirVenture what it...

Putting a Plane into Storage by JAX
Is there a procedure or can anyone offer advice on putting a plane into long term storage, so that the airframe is protected and a few years down the road it can be brought back up with a minimum of fuss and lubing? Should the plane be wrapped somehow to keep insects and critters from getting in? ...

UK Firefly crashes by F7FTCAT
Am I imagining things or does there seem to be a pretty high attrition rate among the really rare airplanes at some of these UK airshows? I mean there was the P-38, P-63, Mosquito, the Me-109 (Black 6), then there was the Sea Fury on the golf course and the Sea Fury on the beach. Now there is...
