Fresh from the Fete Aérienne of La Ferté-Alis, Aérodrome de Cergy. A rainy day but some unforgettable moments.

Just a sample of the menu ... if you want more, say it loud!

An Hawk 75 from Escadrille Lafayette, the only existing (and flying) French warplane of WWII. Fought Germans in 1940 (and probably downed 2 enemies), and lastly fought the Americans during the Operation Torch ...

A Corsair:

A Spit Vb LF, if I'm not wrong:

And the Hawker Hurricane IIC:

More to come if you wish so.

More of the Hawk. I've got several others and a video of the Hawks' flight, as soon as I got the time I'll share it.

A Morane-Saulnier without ailerons (wing deformation instead as in the Wright's plane) with a Rhone engine:

Here you can appreciate its sophisticated radial engine design:

Many thanks, Insuber---that Hawk 75 is such a beauty! And, thanks for the Morane-Saulnier---another particular favorite of mine! Beautiful photography. Perfect day for taking phots.

pictures dont convey just how massive the Skyraider is - it dwarfs P-47 Thunderbolts when side by side

awesome pics Insuber

This Corsair is a F4U-5N or NL, to be exact. I doubt it has the radome on the starboard wing, I think the Collings Foundation's F4U-5NL is the only flying F4U-5N to have the radome installed.

Very nice photos, I enjoyed them all! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Insuber, 1000 points for the best shot I've ever seen of a 109G done since WWII (your first photo posted at 14:57)! Absolutely stunning.

Man, that 109 looks soooo menacing! I don't think I would be brave enough to fly it!

Thanks to all you guys for your nice comment, which repaid me for the rainy and chilling cold afternoon at La Ferté-Alais ...

Leitmotiv, thanks but I'm afraid you've a bit exhaggerated ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
