Lyrics from Naked Raygun's "Rat Patrol".
"What we need to take control,we could use the Rat Patrol.What's that coming over the dune?...
Chasing the halftracks across the sandflats,got a nice pine box,for that desert fox,machine guns blaring,and Arabs staring wondering why,the Westerners are there.It's the same old story,and it'll happen again."

Verdammte Schei??e!

Now that shows how dangerous being an air show pilot really is. Good thing is the pilot died doing something he really liked. I often wonder, why can't they retrofit ejection seats to those warbirds http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Bet he landed to check his pants! I would have been very upset if he destroyed that rare plane.

An ejection seat uses explosives to jettison the canopy and send the pilot out. A rocket motor then fires to launch the seat/pilot to a high enough altitude for the parachute to deploy.

Explosives and rocket motors (at least of this size) are not something just any schmuck can own (at least in the U.S.). As far as I know, only military aircraft are allowed to have ejection seats.

Also some good photos of his OTHER Big Beautiful dolls....

It's little known that Landers flew with the Yellow Jackets (361st FG)commanding the unit postwar (July '45). This would make a good skin:

Also he flew with the 55th FG:

As well as P-38s with the 55th FG, he also flew P-40's with the 49th FG over New Guinea. Unfortunately, no pix are forthcoming for these birds, but I will hunt some more!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Lyrics from Naked Raygun's "Rat Patrol".
"What we need to take control,we could use the Rat Patrol.What's that coming over the dune?...
Chasing the halftracks across the sandflats,got a nice pine box,for that desert fox,machine guns blaring,and Arabs staring wondering why,the Westerners are there.It's the same old story,and it'll happen again."
