The photo ship was the former winner of the 1975 and 1976 T-6 Gold Race - Gotcha

Found this little gem in the hanger -

along with an L-39 and "Getche's" Sea Fury.
Also got to have a peek at Dago Red and had a very interesting chat with Dan Martin, a very interesting day at the airport.

Can we assume that the DH-88 Comet is Bill Turner's Replica? I got to see it fly at the Phoenix 500 several years back. Super slick design! :thumbsup:
