One of the most beautiful airplanes ever built. The last Gunfighter. 6-50 caliber M-3 Browning machine guns in the nose.

Mayday is a manufacturing facility about a mile from the Denton TX airport and makes bearings for the CV-22 Osprey. The president of Mayday is a retired Naval Aviator Colonel and a former Top Gun instructor. He still maintains relationships with his brothers still on active duty. He arranged for a flight of 2 CV-22 Ospreys to make an overnight stop in Denton so his employees could get up close and personal with the aircraft they are making parts for. He is a good boss that knows how to motivate his work force.

1st RC solo flight takeoff. Modified Telemaster 46 with 6' flat wing . Powered by a Saito .82 4 stroke. Way more power than necessary. And yes, I landed it in one piece.

My dad was a navigator on a B-24 over Europe.   He really did not talk about it much, but he did tell me that they flew some missions into east  Germany, and did not have enough fuel to come back.  So they would go farther east into Russia, land, refuel, and fly back.

He said you do not know cold until you are refuelling a B-24, in the dead of a Russian winter, and you cannot shut the engines off, because they would not restart.  Fuel was put in on top of the wings, and even though the propellers are feathered, the props still move air around.

F4U Corsair was a hard plane to land on the carrier as the pilot could not see in front of the plane, so the pilots figured out that if they came in from the front of the carrier and to the side, then when beside the carrier they would bank the plane, keep their eyes on the deck, come around, level it out and plant it on the deck.

My replica F4u Corsair RC model plane is very hard to fly, it goes really fast, but I cannot give it to much rudder or elevator, if I do give it to much it gets out of control, the airfoil just isn't made for drastic variations in pitch, the angle of attack operation envelope is small on my model, to bad I have not flown it in a long time. 

Here is my model, it has some damage to the cockpit cover now, not sure how it happened.

Mosquito_zps990bafb9.jpg

 

 

A lot of the pictures I will post here are old 35mm pictures that I scanned into digital format so the quality isn't that great.

 

The last flight of the last airworthy Mosquito. Manufactured as a Mosquito B.Mk.35 by Airspeed in 1946, this aircraft was delivered to the RAF with s/n RS712, later it was converted to a TT.Mk.35 target tug. It was civil registered G-ASKB in 1963 for use in the film 633 Squadron. The aircraft last flew in 1989, stopping by the Mooney Aircraft Factory in Kerrville TX-ERV, on it's way to the Museum. It's last flight. This aircraft is presently still registered as N35MK to Weeks Air Museum and is at display at the EAA Airventure Museum, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, wearing RAF colors and markings.

— at Kerrville TX 1989.

1946 Mosquito, very fast low pass with two slightly out of sync V-12 Rolls Royce Merlins singing at full tilt. No one will never hear that again.

I was going to make one of these from scratch to fly at the RC field, but things got in the way, it's basically a de Havilland Mosquito with some changes, the reason I liked this one was because I could put props on it without the fuselage getting in the way while the Mosquito fuselage stuck out in front of the props.
