There have been a couple in the area lately. A silver one was at
Torrance Airport a few weeks ago, & a green one (nine o nine) with a
B-24 & P-51 at Hawthorne Airport a couple of weeks ago. Which one did
Silver, with a blue stripe up the tail...I think it had a black square
with a white letter in the middle of the stripe.
I was skydiving down at Lake Elsinore once, and as I was in freefall a
close formation of a B-17, a B-24, and two P-51s (may have been a
Mustang and a P-47, it was some years ago) flew by heading southbound as
I fell past it, about 5-6K AGL...now *that* was a view! And the sound
of all those engines - sheer music!
A whole 'nother airplane. The one at Torrance had a vertical red stripe
on the tail. That make three here in two months. If you check out
alt.binaries.pictures.aviation & look around 4/11, you'll see some pics
I shot of it. I am currently posting pics of nine o nine.
