Going Flying

A place to talk about flying your fuel warbirds.
Post here your flight plans and results.

We had some great flights yesterday. Getting 2 and 3 big or giant warbirds in the sky at once. Going for a repeat this AM - beautiful weather here in So Cal for flying. I'm flying the cover off the D520 Dewoitine 120sz with rebuilt DLE 30. Moving from a 18x8 to a 18x10 this AM with hope for a little more speed.
And flying the always dependable CMP Corsair with EVO35GT. Great engine swinging a 19x10

Yesterday 3 of us had in 120 sz :
Seafury, Corsair, Dewoitine
Giant size :
Zero and ME109

We had our scale event this weekend. Had a blast, also had some damage on a couple of my favorite planes. My stearman had some dle30 problems and two dead sticks, the second being a hard landing, got some fixin to do on that one. My NE-1 sputtered so I brought it down immediately as it was losing power. Came down in tall grass just short of the runway. Got a little fixin to do on that one too. But the H9 P-40 was old reliable and flew flew flew. I won a F9F Panther foamy edf in the raffle. Not too bad a day.

Ohhh vettster sorry to hear that - we had hi winds here durring the week but they laid down and co-operated for the weekend flyers.

For me today was as bad as yesterday was good - LOL. I propped up the D520 (DLE30) with a 18x10 prop and she really ripped I held my own with the instructors giant Zero , Mokie 2.10 powered bird. Upon landing I didn't dial enough crow, the resulting stall tore gear out of one side - it will fix easy enough ......

But not the Corsair. It will never fix. Too many high G maneuvers chasing my buddy around. The wing folded at a factory joint and in she went. We sure had fun with that one. I look forward to putting the finish on my new ESM Corsair and going at it (a little easier) again.

The event is at the old Castle Airforce base were they kept B-52 so the runway we fly off is like 4 or 5000 ft long and over 300ft wide Last year they had 500 registered pilots and over 50 vendors and if have not gone to the castle air museum that's worth the trip by it self On the 25th is open cockpit day how many times do you get to crawl inside anything at a museum ??
here is the link http://www.castleairmuseum.org/
