    That is awesome! Brings to mind, where are they now? The P-40 at 1:22 with the racing canopy? Any knowledge on this aircraft? Oh for a time machine.

    Great Video, thanks for sharing. What happened to the ME 262 ? There's some pretty rare planes there.

    The Me-262 is now owned by Paul Allen and is being restored to fly with the original Jumo engines. I think this Me-262 was at one point owned by Howard Hughes who wanted to race it at Cleveland against the Army's P-80s.

    I made that quite a few years ago...forgot it was on Vimeo.

    The P-40 racer was rebuilt by Frank Sanders for Sue Parrish.

    Was Sue Parrish the woman that flew into a Shafter,CA Airshow in a P40 that was painted Pink?

    Their O-47 was modified to finish the filming. It was later restored to all it's glory but was lost after a belly landing when it caught fire and burned out.
    I remember being there in the early 70's ('74 I think) and the yard around the museum looked like a scrapyard, so many aircraft sitting outside, badly weathered and missing parts. It is amazing how far they have come.
    At that time there were still a bunch of Catch-22 B-25's on the field and the Aero Sport hanger hosted Miss Candace, Miss Suzy Q, Stump Jumper among others.

    The Pink P-40 hangs in the lobby of the Kalamazoo AirZoo, at least it was there that last time I was there a couple of years ago.
