Found this on another website. Sorry guys and gals, but the sound of a harley doesn't have anything on one of these.

YouTube - H5 -- WWII Bombers over Arizona Landscape on Vimeo.mp4

Had a P47 fly over my house yesterday while I was doing yard work. Heard it coming from a ways away. Thinking that it wasn't any chevy I've heard. Looked up and there it was flying low and slow. It sounded so good. I was hoping that he would turn around and come back.

If you are near Reading, PA in early June, this is very much worthwhile!

Of course, when it comes to WWII planes, I think the Sporty reminds me most of the Mustang.

When I was growing up we had a neighbor who owned a B-25 and kept it at Buchanan Airfield in Concord CA. which was 15 air miles away. Some weekends when the weather was nice he would circle the neighborhood with that beautiful thing. When I was 15 or so he must have sold it because it never returned. A great childhood memory.

Took this at last year's show. My father got a ride in this Mustang and loved every minute of it!

YouTube - Red Nose Mustang engine start

Anyone interested in getting a ride in a Mustang it is based in GA. Here is their website (http://dw.squawk1200.net/aircraft-rides.html). They also do rides at the various airshows they travel to, so check their schedule for a show near you. Price is $1,495.

we have an air show here in Olympia, Wa. every summer and there is always fighters and bombers from all over the globe. always wanted to go up in a bomber and this year is the year. don't know if it's going to be in a 17 or a 25 but it's gonna be a blast to fly in one. the closest thing to that i've ever flown in was a C-130. was with the 82nd Airborne back in 70. Airshow is on Fathers Day this year. ride on the B-17 is 425.00, ride on B-25 is 395.00 both flights are 1 hour

I'm kind of partial to the B-17 myself...

http://www.b17queenofthesky.com (My personal website)

Also, for those curious, the B-17 in the OPs video is Sentimental Journey of the Confederate Air Force (They changed their name but I'll always know them by that...and you can find them by searching CAF.) Pheonix, AZ wing. It visits CA often. We're lucky here in So Cal. There are about 15 flying B-17s in the nation and we have Miss Angela (Palm Springs Air Museum), Fuddy Duddy (Orange County Airport), Sentimental Journey in AZ and we regularly get visits from 909 and the B-24 Dragon and Her Tail both with the Collins foundation out of Florida. Also, Chino is working on restoring their B-17, Picadilly Lilly and star of the TV show "12 O'clock High", to flying condition. She was pretty rough.

I'm spoiled. We have one of the greatest air museums in the nation about 10 minutes from where I work...Chino Planes of Fame. Every year around armed forces day they have an airshow and the week before it sounds like WWII around the base.

They have some really unique planes like this:
http://www.planesoffame.org/uploads/images/Collection_Images/ZERO_LARGE.jpg

The only COMPLETE Mitsubishi Zero fighter that is still in flying condition. It's a hell of a thing to see. When I lived in Riverside I was out in my backyard at dusk one night and the sound of a military prop plane filled the twilight. I looke up and saw this aircraft at about 500-1000 feet buzz over my house with the big red meatballs clearly distinguishing the aircraft. I was shocked and didn't really register what I just saw until it had disappeared from view. I believe that to be the closest I'll ever get to knowing what it might have been like to be a citizen on Oahu just before the attack on Pearl. Obviously still not even close...but the closest I'll ever get.

The one I saw was also headed that way, but there is only 155 miles seperating you from me in a north easterly fashion.

That was gorgeous. I'm a Navy Aviation mechanic, and sometimes, though I respect the aerodynamic and technological efficiencies of the modern aircraft, I do wish that we had more planes designed in the 30-40's streamline style.

However, this is still my favorite looking fixed wing:

and this my favorite looking rotary:

This is actually a picture of my first squadron: HC-4 Black Stallions, which was decom'd unfortunately... home port was Sigonella, Sicilly... I do miss it.

Gotta agree with you on the Prowler/Intruder. One nice looking aircraft.

Living down here in Texas I used to go to the Confederate Air Force shows in Harlingen and here in Houston at Elington Field. You can feel the power exuded from these old radial engined war birds just by standing next to them, before they even crank them up. That is basically what a Harley is, WWII radial engine technology. I guess that is part of their nostalgic appeal.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I guess it depends on when and where you served and the memories you attatch to it. But to me this was and is still the most beautiful jet ever built.

I think the first video would be better without the music and instead use the actual engine sounds produced during the flight..............

Agreed. Seems like an appropriate moment to insert one of my all-time favourite you-tube clips.

I agree. I am a memeber of the Civil Air Patrol, and we provide a lot of the security and traffic direction for this event. There is notihing like walking the flight line at midnight with the moon reflecting off these awesome machines! I make it a point to touch all the aircraft I can. I actually almost got kicked out of the Air Force museum for the same thing. "Sir, we have watched you touch about 20 planes. We have signs that say not to. We will have to ask you to leave if we see you doing it again." Something about touching history, I know I am weird.
