    Memphis Belle

    An amazing insight into the bombers of WW2. Sad and tragic it might have been , but some good came from WW2 : proper aviation!! Today, everytime we take to the air, those pioneers should be remembered.

    My Favourite Warbird

    I love all types of aircraft from WWII fighters and bombers, the Spitfire did a great job and was in service for the full war so for this I have to rate it my best warbird.

    P-38 Lightning
