Beautiful pics Waldo! Added to my wallpaper collection. The Me-108 (?) shows how effective that camouflage pattern is.

I don't know about anyone else but I wouldn't mind a few more. Bring 'em on!

wow...bloody amazing. Hey Beebop....you shoulda got some inspiration from those (cough-the metal A-26 scheme for the A-20 -cough-).

I see now why they Painted Swordfishes that way.

It appears somebody musta bought B-17 "sqare D", later painted as Memphis belle for the movie. It seems to have a new scheme...it's the only one flying with the E model top turret. Looks like an F/E, but it's a G.

The Boomerange appears to have been repainted to. Looks like it has post war markings, but I may be wrong.

Loved the old shots of "white Lightning" . Lefty Gardner sold the damaged P-38 to Red Bull, and they will restore it. I photographed several of these planes back in the 80s and 90s at airshows, and I mean these very ones, like the P38, the B17, and two of the B-25s. Great shots.

I thank you mostly for posting the Firefly picture, as i am guessing it is the one that perished in Flying Legends 2003 that i attended, when the pilot hadn't enough airspace to pull up and stalled as he came to earth. Both died. It's good to finally see her up close though. I wonder if it is the same pilot that died in that picture?!

Thanks for the rest too.

Nope, there are literally only a handful of flyable A6Ms left.
The majority seen on TV and in pics are T-6 Texans that were modified to look like Zeros (originally for the move 'Tora, Tora, Tora' IIRC)

Amazing Pics Waldo!

It's real. Not flyable, but a taxi-worthy one only. Although it did 'accidentally' take to the air at a display in Wanaka once http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It is original right down to the field applied patches to battle damage. The cockpit is a thing of beauty too.

The paint scheme is correct to the individual aircraft also. Surviving pilots from that unit visited the aircraft in NZ some years back, and commented that the yellow fuselage stripes should be white. They were changed the following day!!!!
