Is there an aviation museum that you've been which looks different? I don't mean that has different planes, i mean different way to display them. E.g. i would love to go to a place where they will have maybe a wildcat and two zeros chasing it, instead of random planes put in almost random places with their wheels down and rotating as if they are the new lamborghini. Sometimes they have an SR-71 next to a Thunderbolt or next to Wright Flyer replica.

Do you know of any such plane anywhere in the world?


btw, i bet ReligiousZealot has taken again the same photos without his cousin. Or am i the only one who does that with my girlfriend and my sister, lol. With them to post in my blog and brag, and without to adore the planes when i'm alone hehehehe http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Her shirt says "Orange County Choppers" It's a custom motorcycle shop in Orange County New York. They also have a telivision show that shows them making custom "theme" motorcycles. They also have a web page. Just Google Orange County Choppers to find out more.

Take your cousin on a discovery flight in a Cessna 172/152 (60$ usually), she seems like shes the type to fall in love with aviation. she could be a pilot some day

I don't think it's appropriate for your cousin to be humping the prop of that F8F. Even though it seems the right thing to do. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Great shots, thanks for sharing!!!

One of our customers is in Pensacola and I shall be visiting there in the near future. I will make it a point to get to the museum.

As for all of the comments about your cousin, I got more excited about the picture of the candy bars from the '40s than her. No offense to her of course, as it has nothing to do with her looks, it's just that she looks as old as my daughter. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

One thing i do find stange is that such a nice looking girl likes aeroplanes? Most people i talk to get bored, very hard to come accross are female aviators.

Love all the pics to, shame some of them arn't flying, all the museums in uk more or less have the same planes with only a few american ones, i'd love to see all those corsairs and hellcats, except i've been to flying legends 2, which has got to account for something

Haha, gotta love this thread...I can see what I can do about more recent pics...how does this do:
http://img359.imageshack.us/img359/5400/kme9wd.jpg

As for the guy in the pic, that is me...(laughs at self)and no, we're not incestual, my grandmother just wanted us to look like we knew each other for the pic so she put my stic-er-arm around her. We're really close, brother and sister like, much due to the fact I'm an only child and her sister is like way immature (before you go and say "oooo" she looks nothing like her).

As for showing her this thread, I don't think she'd really care - imo you guys really haven't been dirty. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

For the age groups on this board, I'm surprised to find there are others around my 19 years of age that appreciate this sim for what it's worth http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif. Most of my friends can barely get the plane off the ground, heck, if you've ever seen a guy by the name of ******_bag flying online, you'd probably notice he stalls and spins a lot, plus has a nasty habit to leave his gear down http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Yeah, tvrdi, she knows I was going to post the pics here. She asked if she could be in the pics just on those grounds. She claimed she wanted to add a little color and flare to the planes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif. She's a bit flirtatious if you know what I mean.

I've already told her about posting her pics and what's been being said. She of couse giggled and blushed like I knew she would. Personally, I wouldn't be worried about her, her boyfriend is the one who is the jealous type.
