Awesome shots Paul! Thanks for sharing! Beautiful shot of that Bearcat.

Shame to hear about the Cub going in. Sad deal for all involved.

Here's a couple more





I know not an aviation photo, but this one is really touching. Imagine coming back after the cesation of the war and seeing this. The carrier transported troops back in addition to its crew.



I also marvel at the changes in the Bay Area my father saw in his 80 years, born in Berkley in the late 20's and lived in the East Bay his whole life.

Until about the age of 14 I flew most of the equipment United Airlines operated - either on my Dad's lap or in the co-pilot seat. Then the hijackings started and the party was over.

WOW Tom.....great shots.

Also, very jealous right now lol. Thanks for adding these to the thread!

I have some T-28c time, but an A-4? Wow. I didn't even know there were any registered in private hands.

Still waiting for someone to make that one private Phantom flyable :-|

That may be a Mk.V Spitfire. The mystery plane #1 is probably a Dehavilland Vampire, but it could also be a Venom which looke almost identical but had a different engine.

Put me in the seat; kick the tires and light the fires!

I have to ask about the trip back from the Pacific on the Kardashan after the war. Did the crew get double rations? Your dad's site and the ship's site on the battles in the pacific are the best description of actions I have seen.

i'm not a big airplane buff, but i always liked the A-10 Warthog, personally.

Yeah, it would be a gud jump platform, eh?

Gary, I wonder how many people on ST can imagine the experiences you had. The A-4 is a wonderful airplane. I just got a teaser taste of one; and wishing it wasn't created as a war machine.
