Friday Plane Pr0n

I thought these would be good pics for today – They made me think of Lex 🙂

I’ve been a fan of Heritage Flights and Legacy Flights since they started.  Historic aircraft seem to be found on static display only in museums with increasing frequency these days with few exceptions.  While we can still see many of them fly, I think it’s important to show the latest generations the aircraft that made history and to have them fly in formation with the current machines which keep freedom alive.  There’s a huge contrast in the speed, the size, and the sound of those aircraft from bygone days compared with modern jets and I don’t know that kids these days could grasp nearly as well just how far we’ve come without seeing such displays.  Of course, it’s wonderful for aviation addicts like us to see them as well 🙂

Yes, I know the Hornet is a newer version than the jets Lex flew and that the Wildcat is in French colors, but I thought it was nice to see anyway and I wasn’t about to complain about minor details 😉

FLY NAVY and have a great Friday, everyone 😀 !!!
