I am presently residing in England and have visited RAF Duxford each year since 1997. They have many examples of WW11 warbirds in flying condition including HELLCATs, WILDCATS, BEARCATS, CORSAIRS, B25, two B17s, A1D skyraiders.
It was an awsome sight to see all these in a mass flyby for the finally of each airshow of which they put on about five times a year. I was very impressed and awed. Thanks for the oportunity to add my voice to you.
