    This thread started out on the subject of identifying aircraft, I've got to ask. Who owns the Hellcat in the Dodge truck commercial? Love how they pull it out of the grave yard and it's back in the air.

    There was an Adam A500 on the ramp at Skagit when I was up there a month or so ago...

    It is the Hellcat that has been on display and has done formation flights at Reno. Unfortunately it was involved in a prop strike with a Raptor Ford truck on the ramp in either 2012 or 2014, but has returned in good shape after engine inspection and new prop. Congratulation to SoCal CAF on getting this rare bird back in the air.

    If you can be at Reno during the week when it is in the pits (it has been for several years now) it is a great chance to get up close and personal to it and the Spitfire they bring.

    I have seen people call the cessna skymaster a p-38 dozens of times.

    That was my thought. One heck of an achievement! And it's a two-seater! https://jalopnik.com/5410892/81-year...-cross-country
