Warning!

Do not purchase a plane with a partner.

The Following pictures is what happens when one of the partners decides he want his half. The plane was in the Air when the second owner went flying as well and proceeded to take his part of the plane with his prop.. you can see the results. Now none of the preceding is TRUE. This was a Midair between two Brothers who just happen to own the plane together. After landing this was discovered and the one brother said it was one way to get his portion of the plane. Joking of course.. :)

My Top 5 Favorite Warbirds

P-40 Warhawk

1The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was an American single-engine, single-seat, all-metal fighter and ground attack aircraft that first flew in 1938. The P-40 design was a modification of the previous Curtiss P-36 Hawk which reduced development time and enabled a rapid entry into production and operational service.

ME-109

2The Messerschmitt Bf 109, often called Me 109, was a German World War II fighter aircraft designed by Willy Messerschmitt and Robert Lusser during the early to mid 1930s.[2] It was one of the first truly modern fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction.

P-47 Thunderbolt

3Republic Aviation’s P-47 Thunderbolt, also known as the “Jug”, was the largest, heaviest, and most expensive fighter aircraft in history to be powered by a single reciprocating engine.[2] It was heavily armed with eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded, the P-47 weighed up to eight tons.

Hawker Typhoon

4The Hawker Typhoon was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft. While the Typhoon was designed to be a medium-high altitude interceptor, and a direct replacement for the Hawker Hurricane, several design problems were encountered, and the Typhoon never completely satisfied this requirement.

B-25 Mitchell

5The North American B-25 Mitchell was an American twin-engined medium bomber manufactured by North American Aviation. It was used by many Allied air forces, in every theater of World War II, as well as many other air forces after the war ended, and saw service across four decades.
