    Cool but that can be touchy stuff. Our hometown hero, WW2 ace Gabby Gabreski became a POW when he got too low while strafing an airfield and his prop clipped the ground.

    The 3rd one is a different model of airplane. It had bent wings. If that's the wrong term I apologize, I'm not a pilot or even an airplane person.

    Are we the only country dumb enough to start a second civil war because we are offended by the first one?

    It's called inverted gull wings and the aircraft in question is a F4U Corsair. That shape of wing was needed so the huge propeller would not hit the pavement when landing/taking off, while keeping the landing gear short enough to retract into the wing. Notice how much higher the Corsair fly's above the canal compared to the other 3 fighters.

    The first fighter was a P-40, followed by a P-51 Mustang, and the last was the British Spitfire.

    I have done a little barnstorming in my life, but not that low or that fast. It is exciting to do so, until something you missed jumps up and bites you on the butt!

    High speed, low to the ground, tree line to the left and right of you, and a bridge to climb over at the end of your run, These pilots exemplify precision which is what the sponsor, Breitlng watches wants associate with their products.

    Breitling watches is known for their line of high quality "Pilot Watches". They compete with Rolex watches and are priced accordingly.

    Ok then, I know this will bring ridicule but I have to be honest, my airplane ignorance is so extreme I thought Breitling was the manufacturer of the planes and one of them was a different model!

    I should be careful about posting in threads I know nothing about!
